Brown-throated Three-toed Sloth [Bradypus variegatus]What is it with some photographers? Just because a camera is capable of X number of frames per second does that mean it should always be fired at that rate? Here is what I’m really wondering about… is waiting for and photographing the “decisive moment” a lost art? Too many questions? I have observed all too often, while photographing in a National Park or other public space with other wildlife photographers around that many really lay on the shutter release when there is action taking place. Now, from time to time, I have ripped off a few shots of say, bull elk in the throes of a rut battle. And sometimes that really does help get a sequence of behavior. Here is where I perceive the difference.........
