Shooting Flowers

From the Ptak Science Books Blog:

In the always summery days of summer of 1912, Mr. F. Aumaury Talbot went hunting in the wilds of Nigeria--not horribly unusual of course, except that the man was shooting flowers from trees. I've never seen a picture like this, nor have I read anything about shotgunning blossoms from on-high in a tree canopy. And that's what the man is doing--right down to the shotgun.
