    Your depth of field in 95% of the pictures is incredible john! I took a photography class myself in college, and I learned a great deal and shot some nice photos. Considering the camera/lense I was using , a basic Nikon D40 with the DX 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G lense. In the future I would love to get a nicer set up that way I could keep up with some of those shots. Nice to see you've got another hobby to keep you sane aside from reefing! My favorite is the bufflehead you have set as the duck folders picture. The color saturation in the feathers is awesome, and the clarity of the water drops is great! Great job man!

    Thank you Matt. My lens I use now for bird photos has a maximum aperture of f/5.6 at full length. Not a real fast lens for s
