More ACTION - Nikon D3200 shots

This afternoon, I thought I'd stop by the small horse farm down the road from me while I was out running errands.  They have a foal out there and it looks like they weaned him this week from his Mama.  Very friendly, but definitely wanting somebody to meet his needs!!

So, I pulled over and tried my continuous shoot and switching out of lens.

I think I could have still done a better job of focusing but I'm not going to beat myself up on it this week.  There was a fence between us and he took off into a nice trot before I was fully prepared.

Then, he broke into a gallop, which was just perfect for me.

I prefer the above shot...more extension.

The one thing it proved is that I can get those extended trot shots that I have been wanting for the rescue horse farm.

Below, I couldn't even look through the view finder because of the fence but simply raised it up and pushed the button to see what I got.   Unfortunately, it was a very focused mid-fence line. But, little guy was as cute as he could be whining for Mama.

And then, I got to switch out lenses and take a couple distance pics of the horses in the other pasture. Looks so peaceful.

Very cool.

So that's it. Maybe tomorrow I can some more features.
