Re: The garden nursery

It's always a pleasure to see the fledglings at this time of the year. Lovely shots Peter, especially the last two with the youngster's wings quivering.

Re: Green Woodpecker visits my garden

Good shots. These can often be found in cemeteries.

I was surprised to see one recently at a local nature reserve. There was an open area, of an acre or so, almost enclosed by trees. It took...

Excellent shots Peter! Thanks for posting. The eyelid thing is very interesting too. We have a green visit the garden too for the ants, it's often heard but rarely seen due the garden layout. One...

Re: Green Woodpecker visits my garden

Good to see that you got a nice set with this one, Peter.
I saw on TV an interesting doco on the woodpecker's ability to avoid brain damage from constant high speed pecking.
Here's an article on...

Re: Green Woodpecker visits my garden

Wow, you were lucky (and skilful) to get close. We had one in our garden and I was shooting at 300mm through the double glazing.

A moment to treasure - red kite

There are some days when I feel truly humbled by nature, rather than just enjoying it as I do most days. I haven't posted for a while but felt this experience was worth it.

Re: Thinking of looking for a new camera

While we are here, There are many adapters now in the market which enables OMD to use Nikon and Canon mount lenses. Is it advisable to go on that path as native super zoom lenses are still limited?

Re: Thinking of looking for a new camera

The only upgrade path is the E-m1. the other OMD do not have phase AF detection. Olympus did mention that a lens profile is required for the E-m1 to work with the lens properly.But that was only...

Re: Thinking of looking for a new camera
