Re: Autumn Jay

Many thanks for all your kind comments.

Iain, this Jay was in a local park, so I suppose it is used to encountering people moving about. It flew up from the ground near me and perched in a tree. I...

Re: Jammed lens hood on the f4 300mmPro

I have got a can of Silicone Spray somewhere. I use it on my curtain rails to make it easier to open and close the curtains and it works like magic.

I don't think I will use it on the 300mm lens...

Re: Jammed lens hood on the f4 300mmPro

Touch wood it hasn't happened to me yet. However I have found that it is easier to turn the hood by pinching it between my forefinger and thumb on one side and twisting it. If you hold it by both...

Re: Guadeloupe carnival

They look good to me Tord. Vibrant and colourful shots which capture the excitement of the occasion well. As with all your shots, excellent feather detail. ;)

Re: Posing Stonechat

Many thanks for your kind comments Barr1e and Keith. I think the Mk II and 300mm f4 is a great combination, especially with the MC-14 attached (I don't think I could hold the MC-20 steady enough.) I...
