Fair play, I don't think I would do the same.
If you can't say something nice about Pentax, you won't say anything at all.

Apparently.

I nearly got some shots like that once, but I'd just cleaned my shoes and there was this puddle.......

Of course his job would have been easier with a weathersealed body

if ever there was a reason to put a camera, radio remote, and solar charged battery into a floating camera blind and sit safely somewhere else occasionally setting down your cold beer to press the shutter button...., but that's me, I must be stoopid, just wade into disease, parasite ridden cesspool, and hope there's no crocs and the lions aren't hungry works also....


I should sell that guy my rc hovercraft I built, it'd be perfect for that job...
Fired many shots. Didn't kill anything.

Realism: I like the part, where he states he took hundreds of images of some birds, and only 3 images were suitable, How very true, It kind of breaks up the conception that all pro phgotographers take 1 photo and its perfect

Thats been a known fact for years there is the well know saying "the only difference between and amatuer and a pro is the amount of film they use" or something along those lines.

And they have the sense to junk all the rubbish shots and not show anyone!

that is a misconception for sure.
you should research how much film and money goes into getting 4 or 5 images out of a shoot for National Geographic.

but it is probably also true that out of those hundreds of images that got rejected, most were images any amateur would have ecstatic to have shot themselves.
