Nature photographer turns himself into a cactus

A clip from an issue of Popular Science of 1931 reveals naturalist posing as a cactus plant so that he could get close enough to take snaps of different desert species in Arizona. At that point of time, Arthur N. Pack was American Nature Association’s president, and made a number of that ind of dresses so that he could get closer to the subject.

The clipping also reveals that Arthur Pack even made himself a goat dress with horns in order to get very close to mountain goats to take their pictures. While this might not be the very first case of a photographer disguising himself or bird blinds; but this instance is certainly one of the earlier.

Arthur was a storied nature and wildlife photographer, creating documentary films, writing for Nature magazine, working with communities as well as giving lectures at Princeton. That time, there was another man with the same name (as old records show), but it is not sure whether both Arthurs are same or not.

While this cactus dress may appear a bit absurd to some outside viewer, obviously it worked really well for Arthur Pack, and different variations of this technique are even used to this day as well. Photographers would not get incredible success like capturing all species of the Birds-of-Paradise without convincingly hiding the intent from wild animals. And this recent picture may well be the start of photographers hiding behind a bizarre looking camouflaged dress to get closer to their subjects.
