|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|I have shot birds for a while and Coots are everywhere. I have never been in the right place at the right time to catch one running accros the water. This day I was able to capture one. My friend wanted me to see If I would have trouble with auto focus with his 1DM 3 and it is a great camera. No problems focusing. |
