    This is a stunning collection! None of these shots seem staged and some of them are quite hilarious. It would have been nice if you had included the title of the photographs so they could be referenced easier, though. #14 & #15 are my personal favorites. The expressions captured on the faces of the two boys playing volleyball in the mud and the man who seems to be loosing control of his cattle are priceless!

    The talent to capture these images (and the expensive equipment sometimes) is amazing–or just pure luck! I always seem to lack the right lighting when I see a wonderful action shot, or notice it too late. …you really do have to anticipate these shots!

    The one of the hornet and both the horses/birds fighting are amazing.

    This is not volley-ball or beach volley! What the heck is this (highly physical)sport? Is it thai-kick-boxing-volley-soccer? Amazing!!
