Good action shots. I've had to shoot through these nets before, and have found that the closer you can get the better it will blur out the net.

Hmm, is this the shot I saw in the forums where someone was asking how to get rid of the netting? Heheh. Nice shot, well composed. The netting doesn't ruin it for me. Nice work, 5.
