Re: Communal Dragonfly, Butterfly and Insect photo thread

Re: Communal Dragonfly, Butterfly and Insect photo thread

Yes, beautiful in flight, even more so in their natural habitat by rivers. Which I would love to see. Unfortunately only ever seen on videos so far.

Re: Communal Dragonfly, Butterfly and Insect photo thread

The large one is an Atlas Moth, one of the largest moths in the world, and quite often found in butterfly houses, but natively from the forests of Asia. And although large they have no mouths and so...

Re: Official: I am an Otter Spotter

Mark

Lovely to see some real, wild activity shots. And interesting activity too. All of mine have been captive animals. Any wild otters I have seen have been at distance and pictures are just a...

Re: Sunny Sandpipers

wonderful, Ron.

I can see some nice purplish colours amongst the greys. Not a bird I have ever been close too. Well worth the trip out.

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

Was the ideal weather for this in the garden yesterday. Icy and sunny. I was trying for the pheasants but spotted a robin.

Re: OM-D EM-5 Up to scratch for youtubing?

Just to help a bit more, I hope. This was a simple video using the em5 for a few of the B-roll shots and with the interview shot with a fixed camera position onto tape. It was a very busy working...

So for the hell of it I put the teleconverter (just a cheap one) on so it is 560.0mm (35mm equivalent: 1120mm) and on a monopod taken at 1/30 and f9 iso 640. Needless to say most of the shots had...

Re: Sigma 150-600 mm adapted for MFT???

Just for completeness I put the lens on the EM5mk2 and used a monopod to keep the iso down to 640 (1/40 at f8 ...as it is still not very bright today...). This is SAF which is slow on the EM5 but...

Re: Sigma 150-600 mm adapted for MFT???

And just to help a bit more I have taken shots in better weather and have a small album on Flickr.

Re: Sigma 150-600 mm adapted for MFT???

Re: Little Grebe in the Sunshine

Very nice. The low sunshine helps to pick out all of the details and gives it a wonderful colour. I usually see them from a hide at full telephoto, so I know what you mean! :)

Re: Megachile centuncularis Patchwork Leafcutter Bee
