M4/3 birds in flight... underwater?!
Mar 29, 2013

I'd like to show you some very different BIFs today - underwater ones!

(No I didn't actually drown my precious Pana G5 - I took it to Taronga Zoo in Sydney with a glass window to see what these gorgeous penguins were up to.)

On land they look a bit funny, the water was definitely their domain

They zoomed past in groups - so I hung around the penguin viewing spot for a while trying to catch some good shots. Generally I'd get the first or 2nd penguin swimming past - and while the camera was saving the RAW, the rest of them would fly past. And I'd have to wait for their next pass for the next chance to get a photo. They're incredibly fast underwater!

Panasonic G5, 45-150mm kit lens.
