Default Just passing through

I got real lucky with this shot. I am using a Panasonic fz 300. I was taking pics of a really bright rainbow at my home. I heard a helicopter coming in the distance, so I focused on the rainbow and waited. Sure enough it soon arrived and I snapped the pic as it was passing through. Everyone that has seen the picture I printed said that is a "National Geographic" Moment. I think I had it zoomed to the full 600mm. I found out later that the chopper was a "Life Flight" one. The only post proccessing was to reduce the file size so I could put the pic in here. fstop- f/4 - exposure time - 1/320 - ISO - 100, Ex. bias - 0, focal length - 29mm, Max aperture - 2.97265625, metering mode - pattern, 35mm focal length - 162, white balance - Auto.

G'day mate

Well done - a sort-of-planned 'grab shot' that has come out quite okay

Thanks Ozzie. Much appreciated. I have many more with this camera.
I used to post in FujiFilm HS20EXR forum, but if you go there, you will find out that, that camera caught fire on me. I saved my money for a long time and purchased this one.......Larry
