‘To show hyenas in their element, I wanted to photograph them at night,’ Burrard-Lucas says.
‘The stars in Africa are so beautiful that I also wanted to include them in my image.
I used a remote-control “BeetleCam” to position my camera on the ground so I could photograph the hyena with the beautiful starry sky behind.

I lit the hyena with two wireless off-camera flashes and used a long shutter speed to expose the stars’
