p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Mothers day tribute with cheetahs


Greetings friends,

A toast: To loving mothers, whose greatest joy is seeing their child develop and succeed - and to a mothers strength when faced with adversity and loss.


Serengeti: 4/9/13, 1DX, 500mm, f4, 1/500, +.67 ev, iso 2500 - spot metering and focus, light crop to 15mp.

Thanks for looking ...and considering the mixed emotions.

Jim

Mother cheetah is VERY proud...momma gazelle, not so much...mixed emotions abound but that is truly the nature of things.

Hi,

A super action hot. You can see the fear in the deer's eyes. Truly nature in the raw.

Hey Eric, yes, in this case - one mothers gain is another ones loss. Gotta love that cubs athleticism though.

Crazy action!

Did you feel your 500 was long enough or do you wish you would've had the 600? i am headed to africa and we are taking 100-400, 300 2.8 IS II, 600 4.0 IS II. thinking about buying a 500 II to save the 1.5 lbs

Hey Marcy, it was unfortunate to have had the evening sun slip behind the cloud just before this unfolded - but a quick upping of the iso helped...1/500 was on the edge of being enough speed. Thanks for commenting!
