A remotely operated birding combo :)

Just sharing a couple of photos of a birding contraption made by my friend Bobby K. (a Filipino birder-electronics engineer). It's a 450D + 400 5.6L with a "HERO" Live-view attachment and remote shutter triggering, mounted on a remote controlled toy vehicle with a swiveling head.

Here's the contraption in action while stalking water birds at Olango island, Philippines (photos courtesy of Ralf N.):

Link to details of the contraption:
