    This is a wicked shot because it made me immediately think of the history of animation and film.

    Eadweard Muybridge started his photographic compilation of animals in motion. Hired by the former governor of California, Leland Stanford, to investigate the question of ‘unsupported transit’ — whether or not a trotting horse ever had all four feet off the ground, Muybridge took a series of up to 25 sequential photographs a second and, despite the dim and shadowy results, proved that a trotting horse does indeed have all four hooves off the ground at certain moments. Muybridege’s further studies of animal and human motion have become enduring standard reference sources for animators.

    So essentially you beat Muybridge what took him 25 took you one awesome shot
