What an awesome shot ...

Well, thanks so much! That is, indeed, as good as we got in terms of quality IQ with full zoom (not too bright light, either). Obviously, you get a lot of blurry ones, too, so it pays to take a lot of dups, too, if you have the time. These leopards were pretty placid.

Daniel, yes, the 1/10 sec. at near full zoom impressed us, too. I did not feel the need for comparisons to know we were getting our money's worth out of the monopod. Since the 1/10 sec. leopard was seriously lolling, we had plenty of time and got several other nice ones of that guy.

Here's another shot that looks quite nice at 1/100 of a sec, even printed. But, a larger print or large monitor shows some softness. I'm not sure if it was focus or motion blur. In the jeep, there are many jogs and such (e.g., passengers moving around) that the monopod cannot deal with. Another reason for dups.
