    You are setup in a place where the wildlife is very close and moving at high speed. You have very little time to react, so you pick up the camera and try to use your focusing points to get a good focus lock on the subject and begin to fire away. In only a moment's time the... More

    by Matthewcuda | 26th of June, 2015

    by Matthewcuda | 11th of June, 2015

    by Matthewcuda | 11th of May, 2015
