I sure am Peter, it's a great piece of kit.

I'm just waiting for some decent weather and I'll be using it again at Minsmere to try to capture the Starling murmuration.

If you fancy joining us, let me know and I'll drop you a text to let you know when we're going.

It won't be for at least a week though as my E-M1 is in Portugal with Olympus.

These two are absolutely making me very envious. I would love to be shown these two - one day. Well worth a trip for me as they are not in Northants.

Both look fairly fresh and the photos are really nice technically too.

Keep them coming

Peter

Peter,

Thank you for this Brown Hawker. You got quite close which is good as he appears to be eating a wasp...unless you know better. Never seen a wasp being eaten before - glad something enjoys them!

I agree about the quality of some of these latest pictures. The thread is really taking off. I was concerned that as it gets colder then it may slow down. So dig through the archives and share what you find.

The backlit hoverfly is very nice, well seen.
