It's also often easy even in action sports photography with hyperfocal focusing. -- Best regards, John Buying a dSLR doesn't make you a photographer, it makes you a dSLR owner.

LOL, just carry some bait and put it exactly where you want the animal to be, then pre-focus, and wait. While this would be illegal if you were shooting the animal with a gun, it'd be okay just for photographing the animal (unless you're in a place where feeding wildlife is forbidden). It's the perfect workaround to slow contrast-detect auto-focus.
