    Elfrieda, no it's not easy. Shooting action is easy if you're far away, but shooting it tight requires a lot of concentration The main concern is the follow focus as you are working with an extremely narrow depth of field, especially if using a 300 or 400mm lens!

    High end professional sports photography. The kicking legs, the flying tail, and particularly the anguished face (in near perfect light) seems to me to define bareback. Terrific.
