For years , I was trapped in the illogical fear of shooting at high ISO . On a recent trip to Masai Mara , I was tempted to finally use Auto ISO , specify the minimum shutter speed needed , and let it flow . This was the first image with this  , and a paradigm shift for me . As my photography guide had mentioned earlier in the day , " I would rather have a noisy but sharp image than a clean but blurred one !"

Canon 1DX mk III , 
Canon 400mm f/2.8 ISIII USM , 
ISO : 25600  , f/2.8 , Evaluative metering +0.67 , 1/1000.

A very unique image and a great poster shot. Not an inch of the frame is without water droplets and the action captured is great. Too many people are caught up in thinking within the box and thus creativity is stifled. Art is lost to engineering because of rigid thinking. I like shooting with a phone a lot of the time because there are moments that cannot be captured quickly enough with a “real” camera, but many people discount them as unworthy images because of the small sensor. You did a great job by going against the grain of conventional thinking and using high ISO. That, to me, is a true artist!

An interesting view of what appears to be a very satisfying shake!

Very entertaining! Great job getting all those droplets and a wonderful shake pose. Great thinking "out of the box".
