“Lucky shot”?!?

Getting up early, hiking to the watering hole, positioning yourself relative to the sun, selecting your gear, waiting patiently…. The only lucky thing is that a lion didn't get you. (Unless, of course, this is at a Safari, you just pointed your camera out the window to verify your settings, pushed the shutter release a little too hard, and …voila!)

It was a little difficult to catch the "S" at first glance. I first looked at the giraffe searching for it and ... surprise , she raised her head after drinking and left an "S" trail of water drops in the air, Great
I don't remember who said " To take a great picture, you have to be in the right place in the right moment ", I would ad " and have a good dose of luck ".
And you were there.
Nice work,

Great shot I assume it was at Etosha. Have you used machine gun mode? Or pressed it at the right time?
