Leap of Faith

While waiting and watching the Snow Leopards at Potter Park Zoo, I noticed that this one was tired of sleeping up on the high rocks and was getting ready to leap down to the ground (a fairly hefty jump). I got my lens focused on the rocks directly behind her and waited for her to jump. With my tracking on AI, the lens quickly pulled in sightly to grab her in action. I did have to increase my ISO to get my shutter speed fast enough (I wish I could have gotten it even faster).
