1900, Cherry Kearton standing on his brother Richard’s shoulders to take a picture of a bird’s nest 

The  brothers were pioneers of wildlife photography and in 1892  took the  first ever photograph of a bird’s nest with eggs. In 1899 they  published  ‘With Nature and a Camera’ illustrated with 160 photographs.  Richard  went on to develop the photographic hide, after a series of  experiments  one of which involved hiding in a stuffed ox in order to  obtain better  pictures.
