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: 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...

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???

Firstly adapted lenses work well on the metabones adaptor. I cannot tell...

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: Communal Bird Photography Thread

Ron never seen the underwing on a curlew before. Really bright, jazzy and makes the image. Always seen them as dull before, nice to see the reality. (and agree with Mark - the Harrier is OK too ;)

Lovely, evocative images Ron. It is a delight to be suddenly in their presence and it passes so quickly. Good that you can now get images to remember and be proud of as well.

Re: Communal Dragonfly, Butterfly and Insect photo thread

Six :) . Hopefully they are making a comeback having all but disappeared in the UK (down 86% since 1976) although as you are near the coast that is one of their stronger locations. Still lovely shots.
