Thanks for the comments MF. In the second paragraph I gave a short account of the moment and how I managed to capture this shot. I suppose I have to admit that there was a fair amount of luck involved even though I anticipated the shot and the spot.
"I realised I would not be able to capture this with the long lens as the two Impalas were really speeding along at an incredible pace, but I did notice that the ewe seemed to be running in ± the same circles all the time. That was when I decided to pick an open spot and set up the little Sony HX1, so that if the ewe ran into that area again I only had to fire the shutter release button and hopefully I would get a usable shot. I just finished doing this when she obliged and ran right into the frame. All I had to do was to press the button and hope for the best."
I hope the 'depression' you mentioned was only a 'ditch in the road' and that you managed to negotiate successfully how to circumvent or force yourself from the situation that was causing the unease. I notice that you have become regular and active on the site again and even participate in FB activities. So, I hope and trust you are on top of all once again.
Take care MF and have a fabulous week.
PS. Forgive me for the long delay in my reply, but as you probably know I too have not been active on the site for quite a while. Hopefully I can improve on that in the near future. Btw, seems like you got sorted out with a camera and you're once again able to capture all those wonderful images from the Jim Corbett National Park and surrounding areas.
