East. Giant Eland




Never say never.  The above image was captured with a 200-400 F4 vibration reduction zoom.  There is absolutely no way that I would hand hold this lens.  Strictly for use with a monopod or tripod. 


Then, while walking through the African Safari section of Wild Animal Park near San Diego, this Eastern Giant Eland became infatuated with a little girl standing near the railing to the exhibit.  I grabbed my 200-400 and ran off several shots hand held.  In spite of the lens's size and weight, the image was successful.
