CR Guy,

I hope you'll give us more details on the safari itself. I'm really amazed at the shots you got using just a maximum focal length of 300mm. I've read reviews that recommend a minimum length of 400mm for any trip to Africa, so I was amazed at what you got with the focal lengths you took along.

I tried to shoot some bald eagles this week with a Canon 400mm on my 7D and they fill less than 5% of the frame at their closest. I can't imagine how close you had to be to get these shots with the 300mm.

Please, more details on the trip itself.
