Default The family that fishes together....

Took a neighborhood walk down by the wetlands today, and happened up a pair of GBH catching a fish.

E-3, 50-200; ISO100, f5; 1/1,000.

Good shot Steven, I like that you can focus through the reeds like that.
Just keep putting fish out there so they don't come after my goldfish..!

Thank you Ken.

Focus thru the reeds is always a challenge. I use single point focus set at S-AF +MF so I can try to touch up the focus if I notice that it doesn't focus thru the reeds. I usually have several throw-aways because the camera focus is on the reeds instead of the bird's eye.
