Default Air Bubble

This past weekend I was shooting a sea turtle surfacing for a breath. Just as he neared the surface, he breathed out and created a large bubble that breaks over his head as it surfaces. Lucky timing for me, as I captured the bubble.

E-3, 50-200mm OOC



Here is the whole sequence that I captured:

Really cool pictures Steven!!
Amazing how that air bubble comes before that turtle get his head above water.
Not to forget that you have seen this happening and been able to photograph it!

Thank you very much, Lordje.

I have to admit that it was mainly just luck. I was standing on the dock when I saw the turtle underwater, and I just waited for a while to see if it would surface. When the turtle started surfacing, I just happened to be in the perfect position to take some shots. Credit the burst mode of the E-3 for this capture. I didn't even realize that he had released that big air bubble until I reviewed the shots; at the time it just seems like a big splash when he broke the surface.

I took the shots and went on to other subjects. It was after I was back home and downloaded the day's shooting to the computer that I discovered the big bubble. I had never seen anything like that and thought it was kinda cool. And I have to say that sometimes I continue to be pleasantly surprised by the OOC output of the E-3 and the 50-200mm lens.

.....another reason it usually pays to do sequential when shooting creatures of nature.

Great, right there Steven
