Me trying to shoot a dragon in flight.
Every time I'd pan my spine would snap crackle and pop.
I'll pay for this physically tomorrow :(
and even crazier, ISO 12,8K....

Hehe! Yes I hear you on the luck part but would you believe I got 10-15 shots just like this? The camera was actually
hitting focus in zone mode. So out of a one second burst/14 shots I'd get two or three like this one. So after 20-25 min's
I ended up with those 10-15 shots.
Truth be know this was during a panning movement following the dragon---when they'd suddenly do the 90 or 180 turn
all was momentarily lost.
I don't consider this a great shot or anything but for the first time it wasn't spray and pray but actually seeing the red
focus square on the target.

Very cool indeed.

I hear you on the back. Every time I stand up my wife comments on all the crackling. :oops:

I wouldn't say that it isn't possible if the conditions were right. But last night I watched several of them at dusk & decided that there was no way that I could have followed them. They were just too small & moving too fast & erratically.
Good on you for taking advantage of better conditions & getting a great shot!

Great catch, perhaps a gimbal setup is in order if the back is giving out (I sympathis about backs).
