About those lions......

The fact is, doing that combined with a high frame rate will give you a lot more great shots to choose from, a lot more wing positions/body positions, whatever applies.

For example a couple of weeks ago I was shooting lions, and every time one yawned I would fire off a burst, knowing when to start mattered, but I'd still much rather have 8-10 different open mouthed pics to choose from than 4-5.

Yep:

Nikon D4 ,Nikkor AF-S 500mm f/4G ED VR
1/320s f/10.0 at 500.0mm iso800

And Leopards too :
