I like the names of animals groups such as a pride of lions, a school of fish, a murder of crows, and a crash of rhinos. This is a 'tower of giraffes' I photographed in the Masa Mara Conservancy in Kenya, and it was the first time I was able to capture an attractive arrangement of so many giraffes. Usually they are browsing in and among trees and high bushes and it's hard to get a clean, well composed image. I used a 100-400mm zoom set to 312mm which means this group wasn't very far away. My settings were 1/1000, f/9, and 1250 ISO. On safari, I used to use bean bags all the time in lieu of a tripod while shooting from Land Rovers to support a camera and long lens and get sharp pictures. However, most safari vehicles are now open with arm rests too low to be useful for bean bag photography. In addition, with the ability to use higher ISO settings than we ever could in the past, I simply raise the shutter speed -- like I did here -- to insure sharp pictures.
