When looking through the viewfinder and in-the-zone after the ultimate picture, it is easy to lose our normal cautions and place ourselves in harm's way. While I would have liked to get even closer for this shot, I kept my sanity and shot from a low position behind the jump standard not seen in this frame. This virtually assured that I would not have a 1,000 animal land in my lap.
The 1D X's 12 fps burst rate made getting the perfect subject position easy - and it's even more amazing AF system made most frames from this very-fast-focusing lens sharp options to select from.
