Playful tigers

This scene might look like a fight but in fact those two beautiful tigers from Warsaw Zoo were only playing together. Have you ever watched kittens (or at least young cats)? If so it looked exactly the same. Some sort of wrestling but without desire to hurt the other side.

Yesterday I mentioned fantastic continuous AF of 5D MK III. Another great feature is fast burst mode with 6 frames per second. These two features made it really easy to capture photo like above. I focused once and then followed the action having shutter release pressed for a few seconds.
