    Not my best but the story is pretty funny. I was using my V1 with the 10-30 and near the waters edge. I saw these two ducks coming on for a landing so I shot from the hip. It was muddy and a slipped on my a$$ and slide into the lake. All the while I Managed to keep on arm up to keep the camera safe LOL
