Les, you are spot on. Couldn't agree more
As an example of what I described above, the shot below of 2 eagles engaged in aerial combat was from a 3 shot burst at 10 fps. Yes, I tried to anticipate the action that I wanted, but, with the other 2 frames in the burst, in one, a wing was covering the face of one of the birds, and, in the other, one of the birds had its head turned slightly away from the camera. Perhaps, there is someone out there who could have anticipated the precise moment out of a 2/10 of a second time span when the positions of the two birds were going to be as good as they were going to get, but I know that I can't do that. From the 3 shot burst and within that 2/10 of a second time span, I ended up with one shot that I really liked and 2 that went into the trash. Could I have gotten that shot at 5 or 6 fps? I'm sure that there would have been a chance, but, because lots can happen in a small fraction of a second, I like my chances a lot better at 10 fps.
