Just to maybe get an idea, is there any guys out there with pic's taken on foot, a fast snap or a close-up. I would also like JL, SB etc. to give their opinion. No vehicles allowed. :thumbs_up: Also TheunsH, your shark etc.

Any takers. :lol:

Josh, to me that pic tells a million stories, technical I cannot comment but great. :thumbs_up:

Theuns, I am scared of the Zambezi, less scared of the Tiger and really enjoy the Hammerhead. :thumbs_up:

Now where are the critics, :hmz: I think you can really make the difference with the next shots taken with your views. :thumbs_up:

This is what I call action....

This is a fairly young male lion with a zebra meal in mind. He was unlucky, the zebra saw it coming from a long way off, so it had to go back to the not so fresh rhino cadaver.

Canon EOS 30D, f/8 @ 220 mm, 1/250, ISO 250, No Flash.

Michel, I'd rather not. :twisted: might have to change shorts after.
