Default Walking on Water

Spent the afternoon swimming with the kids, and the park we went to had a small creek running next to it (not very much water though). I went down to the bank to see if there was anything interesting, and saw these guys. They would land at the edge of the water then just kind of float as they took their drink. EPL-1 with Panasonic 45-200mm and 10 and 16mm extension tubes. Really wishing I had the EVF as it was tough to see the viewscreen on the back of the EPL-1. I keep refreshing my Amazon orders page, but it doesn't make it go faster

Thanks for looking.

......beautifully done !!

The extenders are working very well for you and this is a special image, everything about it is good.

The EVF makes this quite a much easier task for sure. I never do not use my VF-2 and I hope you will get one (EVF) soon.

Lighter than water...

Makes me think of the last scene from the movie "Being There", where Peter Sellers walks out onto the water. A truly funny movie. Best one he ever did..

Thank you all for the kind words!

Bob - It's the VF-4 that's coming (as part of the EP5 kit). For all the improvements that I expect, it is still good to know that the EPL-1 can still produce. And I should be able to use the VF-4 on the EPL-1 (got to figure out how to upgrade the firmware).

Thanks again!
