Ok, ok.  Here's the REAL story.

After spending hundreds of hours staking out this location and
monitoring the comings and goings of the bison and timing my
arrival to coincide with the greatest animal movement of the
day, I stalked the pheasant using my trusty European made mobile

Positioned next to me was my field bag containing a full-kit of
high-quality glass and multiple cameras. The Olympus E-1, a
well-designed camera with outstanding ergonomics and much
lighter than the Nikon F5, is easily carried in a day pack up
the face of the Matterhorn during a snowstorm. The Zuiko 200/4
manual focus lens was attached to the Olympus and is better than
the big-bertha lenses because you can handhold it as well as run
57 miles through a 120 degree jungle with it and not break a
sweat.  The second camera is the Minolta A1 with integrated zoom
lens and image stabilization.

In order to capture this picture, I utilized the continous-drive
mode and ran a non-stop sequence of over 20 pictures.

The entire time spent in-field was about an hour and a half and
over 600 pictures were taken.

Is that better?
