Shooting in "Burst" Mode

First you sneak up...Whether you find yourself trying to capture a fast moving subject or maybe you're trying to take a hand held shot in less than perfect light, the "burst" mode on your camera is an invaluable tool in your arsenal.  Once set to burst mode, simply hold the shutter release down and fire away. 
When shooting hand held in low light, burst mode gives you a better chance of capturing at least one image with sharp focus.  The beauty of digital is you can simply toss the fuzzy ones out and it didn't cost you anything.

...then, toss head back
...and finaly, satisfaction
