  • Nice as always, Col, especially the alien. I'm pretty sure those red flowers are euphorbia milii or Crown of Thorns. Rick
  • Just riffing off your "I just have a few. Ain't that a relief!", Rich. It's good to hear you're clearly on the mend. And how can you not take a camera with you if you're walking a couple of miles?...
  • You're right. It's not easy to pick a spot - the white flowers don't stand out but the foliage is an effective feature. They make an attractive shrub. What's the S-shaped object near the centre? Rick
  • What a fascinating park; those scenes are both beautiful and interesting. The 3rd one makes me think someone like Gaudi designed parts of the park. Rick
  • Replied in Blooming Trees
    There's something about flowering trees that I find difficult to capture, but I like the tranquil sceen in the second one, and the close-up of the flowers catches the light nicely - I really like...
  • Phew! only 7... do I have to pick a favourite? Maybe the last - those are unusual little flowers and you've caught them beautifully. Or the 6th one - it's also interesting withthe background...
  • We have a small weekender cottage on the NSW coast which we have just sold. When I was up there yesterday cleaning up personal effects  I took a stroll around the village, and noticed the number of...
  • Before we look at lenses, I suppose the obvious question is - why the E-P5 and not the E-M1 which will auto-focus all your existing lenses and thereby ease the transition? (And the M1 and its M5...
  • re the E-M5, it's not just the superior viewfinder it's also the manual focus magnification. It's works brilliantly, and I have linked its selection to the Fn2 button. As others have commented it...
  • Well, I have used a Rokkor (Minolta) 50mm f/1.7 lens with both e-520 and e-m5. I didn't have high expectations, so I got a cheapie adapter on ebay that was nevertheless advertised as having a focus...
  • I don't know where you are so I don't know when "tonight" starts.... but I've found the Oly interface easy enough to use. These really quick notes are from my M5 which is very similar. The big LH...
  • Well done - I like the 4th especially for the translucent wing pinions. Looks like the dam isn't big enough for those two to share! Rick
  • The lemon is interesting - great colours - and that's a lovely one of the squirrel. Is that your swimming pool the ducks are swimming in? Rick
  • Replied in Breakthrough
    You should put this one in the Challenge - a Promise of Spring! Rick
  • That first image is indeed a nice composition. The horse fly looks pretty nasty! Rick
  • I'm another one who likes purple and gold - no wonder the Roman emperors kept imperial purple for their use only. Rick

    A lovely selection as usual, Rich. Too many to pick a favourite! That graveyard flower looks a bit like a coloured freesia, but I'm not too sure about that. If it helps, this is the basic...
  • Nice - especially the last one, the camellia - and I don't think I've seen those "Dutchman's trousers" before - an interesting little flower and name! As always, thanks for keeping this thread...
  • - so ugly I thought it had better go on a separate post from the flowers. But - seen demolishing the black aphids on this lemon bud - it's still prettier than insecticides. I'm not sure what it is...
  • This shrub is commonly known as the poached egg plant, for obvious reasons. Gordonia axillaris It's one of my favourites, because of the delicate texture of the petals.... ... and the gold of...
