Someone posted that it is a female. I have no clue myself.
I took several pics maybe 20 or more just to get a couple that looked good. The beauty of digital.
I put the camera on a tripod and manualy set the focus. After you set everything up just sit still for a bit and your subject will come out of hiding. Tried several exposure combos. The automatic settings were giving me either over or under exposed images.
I then cropped the images. Cut out over half the image to make the fish big.
I was trying to get a pic of the Serpae when a Tiger kept getting into the viewfinder. Ended up with the image used in my avatar. A big part is just luck.
A 37 GL but its really 27gl when full
