it really was an awesome moment... a split second after this he calmly put it down and placed a paw on it then gave it one bite from which you heard an audible "pop" noise. When he picked up the bird again and ran off there was blood and a few entrails everywhere from the one bite. This all happened within firing off a 14 frame burst so taking into account a split second for me to start firing off shots after the initial shock of seeing him the encounter lasted at most 4 seconds before he was gone behind the snow bank.. and as I said this was only one of a handful of times when I never even thought of getting out of the car for more or better pics if he had stopped close by.... With the size of him that bird was nothing more than a snack and I sure didnt want to become the main course.

Stunning pic wolfsong. I guess we would all have liked to have taken that one. From inside the car. If you find another one you could try for the assignment this month! Wonderful skill.

Wolfsong, GREAT picture of one of my all-time favorite animals! What an amazing situation, and you got the shot to show for it too! That'll be a hard one to top!

Adding one here, but this one is recovering at the sanctuary, so I don't have a great story and the picture is not as good. But they ARE beautiful animals, aren't they?

Serval in the Maasai Mara. The shot was taken using a D90 with a 70-300 lens. Not my photo as I didn't manage to get a decent shot of it's face.

Image

The following shots are mine. They were taken with a 450D and 55-250 lens.

This one was taken at Tsavo East in Kenya.

Image

This one was taken in the Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania. I stuck the camera into sports mode as I was terrified that I would screw up and miss some of the action.

Ethiopan wolf, the world's rarest canid. I saw 7 of them so I've seen over 1% of the population :cry:

The third shot there is incredible Csaba! I'm not into nature photography much but seeing this I am tempted to borrow a friend's 500mm lens and go on safari. Great shots!

This shot was taken few days ago in Kruger. Not the best photo but it's the 1st time that I've had a clear, unobstructed view of a leopard so I'm happy.

Thanks guys

I think having a relatively short lens helped with this one. I really like having the buffalo in the foreground, I probably would have cut him out if I had a longer lens. I still want a 100-400mm though :)

Taken on a morning drive in Ranthambore NP Zone 3 earlier this month. I also saw a female in the same area in the afternoon.
