Good morning, Chris.
Another excellent Zapcat image! I don't suppose there is time to focus manually with this kind of shot, and that you had to use continuous focus tracking.....but with all that spray, I find it amazing that it was possible to focus at all. Or did you prefocus on a set point? Would love to know how you did this. I'm jut a nosey old so and so! However, once again you have captured a marvellous shot....very well done.

Thanks Ronnie
Hand held, AF tracking, not possible to pre-focus anyway as there were quite a few heading for you, just had to make a split second decision which one to go for !
