Re: Communal Dragonfly, Butterfly and Insect photo thread

Walti, it is lovely seeing those Cinnabar Moth caterpillars feeding on Ragwort. It has taken me straight back 60 years to my youth. *chr

Re: Communal Dragonfly, Butterfly and Insect photo thread

I hadn't seen a Gatekeeper this year until today and suddenly they were all over the place. It's slightly depressing seeing those blackberries forming though. I am still waiting for summer to arrive....

Re: Focus point indication during playback

Thanks Bill. I posted my settings in another thread, so I have copied them and updated them slightly, as I don't think I have changed much since then.

Re: Focus point indication during playback

My default at the moment is 25 point for C-AF and Single Small for S-AF.

Focus point indication during playback

I am struggling to get any shots in focus when using C-AF and I suspect that I am failing to get the AF point accurately on the chosen subject when I press the shutter button. I thought I would see...

Re: Confiding Chinese Water Deer

I was trying to make out why I could only see three legs but I think the front left is in line with the other one. That's a relief! I think this particular deer looks even more dog-like than usual....

Confiding Chinese Water Deer

An unusually confiding Chinese Water Deer at Carlton Marshes. Normally, as soon as they spot me they bound away and disappear but this one carried on feeding, unfazed by my presence.

Re: Fishnet Stocking...

If it's 20-30mm long it's a rather fascinating chrysalis. If it's 2 metres I'm out of here! :eek:

Splendid shots Dave. I haven't seen one for a couple of years and I have never managed to photograph one.

Re: Red Kite + Butterflies

Nicely captured Barr1e. It seems strange to see Red Kites in that setting as it is still a red letter day if I spot one near me. I never see Marbled Whites here either.

Re: LCE em1x

I really hope Olympus is working on some extra subjects for tracking, in addition to 'trains, planes and automobiles'. If they could provide that in a firmware update it would broaden the camera's...

Re: Another Satin Bowerbird (in privet).

What a great looking bird Ross. Lovely shots in a great setting. I like the way its eyes match the privet berries.

Re: Going Nowhere...........

That is a lovely, tranquil scene Mark. Despite being completely the opposite side of Britain, it has a remarkably similar feel to Wells harbour near me.

Re: Barn Owl in Evening Light

Many thanks for the comments and 'likes'.

The little spots surrounding the owl are either midges or windblown seeds (or both) caught in the sunlight,. They are not dust bunnies - it is an Olympus...

Wow, that is a real bargain for anyone who wants one. 500 cheaper than anywhere else on Camera Price Buster and 350 cheaper than HDEW. I assume they are not 'flying out of' the stores at the...

Thanks for posting these Tord. What a great set. I especially like the first Arctic Tern and last shot with the 'flying fish'. You certainly seem to know how to get the best out of the camera and the...

Re: MC 20 question...

That looks like fun. Will it work with Ghost Ship? Broadside is a bit much for me these days.
