Behind The Lens

Location
This picture was taken in Tsavo East, Kenya at Satao camp's waterhole in Oct 2010.
Time
We had been on a game drive whole morning and when we returned to our camp for lunch little after midday the show was in full swing.
Lighting
Nothing special with lightning, actually the worst possible very hard midday light.
Equipment
I had Canon 7D with 100-400mm zoom hand held.
Inspiration
I had been dreaming for years to see some day the amazingly huge flocks of Red-billed Queleas. I took several pictures of the flock coming to drink but when African Elephants came to drink at the same time it was more than a dream which came true.
Editing
No. I had only little time to enjoy this phenomena before we had to continue our game drive.
In my camera bag
Nowaday I have Canon 5D Mark III with 400mm/5.6., 100mm/2.8 and 28-105 mm both Canon 7D.
Feedback
To capture something like this picture you just need a lot of luck to experience the huge flock of Red-billed Queleas.
