  2. Perhaps not miraculous, but it is certainly a well timed shot. Does a
    500 CM have much shutter lag?

    Isn't that what photography is about? 'Just being there'?

    'Just being there' is usually no accident.

    It depends. Chance favours the prepared. Some wildlife photogs will
    stalk a shot for days or weeks to come away with nothing or little to
    show for their time. Even the best get bad luck.

    "f/8 and be there" used to be the catchall of photojounalism.

    Was not planned, but being there was certainly neccesary.

    Cheers,
    Alan

  6. "Being there" might have been necessary, but it was probably the last place
    that photographer ever was.......
