Description:

This is one of my favorite images I have ever taken with the 300-800.  We had just gotten to the northern Serengeti in Tanzania along the Mara River when a massive herd started to cross the river.  The versatility of the zoom allowed me to easily compose and recompose the scene as the action unfolded in front of me.  The almost painterly quality of the image was due to all the dust that the herd had kicked up while they milled around the shore and is still one of the most memorable moments I have ever experienced out in nature.
