I experienced this too. You never know. It is like the lions (hyenas, not so much Jackals), and even sometimes cheetah s seem to not even notice a vehicle or anyone in it. I think it is important for that reason to have two bodies with long and short lenses. Sorry, a bit off topic.
Thanks for the laugh.In the Ngorongoro Crater, the lions came close enough for a 16-35mm to work fine.
The Farside clip was cute, but they really did come quite close to the Land Rovers...
