Stuff from Cape Town.

I have been very busy up to chritmas this year and did not get out much and I had very little time for photography . I did get away after Christmas and spent a few days in De Hoop nature reserve. The weather was lousy conditions with bright overcast/hazy or and combo there of. I took all the camera and lenses . The E-30 and 150 f/2 + EC20 worked well The E-5 and bigma worked well as usual. As to the 90-250 well the jury is still out on that lens . When you get it right you get it very right when you get it wrong you get it very wrong. I am still busy with a lot of other stuff that needs to be processed.

Ant way here are some of the shoot some ok and some not so great.

E-5 + 150mm + EC20

E-30 with 90-250 + EC14

These are wild ostrich chicks. The light was pretty harsh.

Fiscal Fly Catcher.

E-30 + 150 f/2 + EC20

Fiscal Shrike . ( Similar to fly catcher but with a heavy beak.)
