Juvenile Red-Shouldered Hawk Launching Sequence. The power in their legs and wings is awesome to observe.

Here's where the details of camera choice, focus lock, tracking and frames per second really matter. The ability to dissect complex behavior like this is impressive.

Being able to shoot ten frames per second (though this sequence was 5FPS) makes for some incredible detail. I get sequential shots that before were nearly impossible.
