Nesting Heron

By Robak
I took this from a moving airboat in Florida at Easter. We were of course looking for aligators, and the five we saw ended up all out of focus. This was my first shot after switching OFF the auto-focus!

Auto focus is all very well but it depends on whats in the way of what you really want to capture. This is a beautiful shot with perfect DOF. Excellent. Clive
