Alpha Whiskey Photography: Took some long exposures in London with this camera. Not a bad little performer, and the in-built ND filter helps with slowing the shutter speed too.

Took the Canon G5 X with me for a trip. Good travel camera.

Connecting kids with nature is vital for its future preservation.
I recently read a very funny kids adventure about dung beetles set in the natural world - Doogie And The Rollers.

Ribblehead Viaduct is definitely a great place to shoot

RichRMA: Very good shots. Big cats are being poached by hunters working for places like China and Vietnam where tiger gall bladders, etc, are used in quack medicine. It's a good idea to find alternative areas for them to live, like perhaps wild areas in North America because where they are living is not longer viable.

Exactly right.

Some are shot directly in B+W using the B+W filter on the camera. There are some SOOC examples in the article. More SOOC B+W shots here:

I don't know anything about wildlife photography, but I always find that getting closer to one's subject makes for a more engaging, and thus more endearing, image. And if the viewer can connect with the animal they are more likely to care about it. Hopefully wildlife photography will encourage more conservation.

Wings are beautiful, indeed as are butterflies….from a distance. But close up their heads and probosces are not attractive:

On article Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX7 Review (611 comments in total)

I was curious about this camera when I heard it announced, but the IBIS and LIVE TIME functions on the Olympus EM5 are so useful to me that I don't regret my purchase. Having captured a variety of subjects with m4/3, I think this format is just great. My FX Nikon is a paperweight.

Stunning photos. I think for the last one, he may have intended the title to be "Slip the SURLY bonds of Earth..." by John Gillespie Magee, used by Peggy Noonan to write a speech for President Reagan to describe the fate of the Challenger Shuttle crew in 1986. "Slipped the surly bonds of Earth to touch the face of God."

Amazing photo nonetheless. :)
