Leap to awards lol.
So how do you do this? Is this a place where they often cross the 'road'? Do you have to wait there for hours? Constantly in concentration? Really curious.
Also, is there a Starbucks nearby? Smile

First of all, Thank you so much for your comment full of humor.
There is no Starbucks, only Blackbucks. Wink
Before visiting the place when I researched it, after going through lots of images (not by photographers), I have an idea about the place, atmosphere over there and color of the land.

When I visited there, the place was covered with mist. The atmosphere is not at all suitable for capturing Birds, the main reason I went there. When the shot was taken the time was near about 10 a.m. So, as you see in the picture, the place was pretty out of great light condition. During roaming in the field, a saw a large group of black-bucks staring at me and waiting to cross the road from the right-hand side of the grassland. And I found the road and grassland and the background foggy atmosphere having a little bit of presence of large trees very attractive. And according to the Black-buck character, they jump pretty high and often during running. So, I visualized the shot, get down to the lowest possible angle to give the shot an artistic touch.

The shot was not by waiting for hours. It was just an improvisation to the plan after spotting them and expect them to behave as the same I imagined. All of them clicked together.

This is the story behind the shot.
Thank you.

Interestimg to read your description. Sometimes opportunities arise when you least expect but you've captured a super piece of action at the perfest moment and from a low angle which adds to the drama. Lovely soft light and pastel colours add to the atmosphere.

Thanks for giving that insight. Had no idea these were called blackbucks btw.
Still looks like a very difficult exercise. That jump last like less than half a second. the part that is in focus is so narrow. kudos to you. Must feel good when you are on the way home knowing you totally nailed it Smile
