Re: Cherry Blossom

Do you think it is a cherry blossom? In Spain cherry trees blossom later and are usually white, but plum trees have already flowered., but I guess that changes from country to country.

I took this photo last week of a flowered plum tree.

He's back!
1

We had a pretty regular visitor here till we left for Thailand in August, and now a couple of days after we came back he's here again!

That the Sigma 100-400 C is again working (after firmware upgrading) came just at the right moment, so that's what I had on my camera (sadly not a N1 camera, but I hadn't time to switch, I hope it's OK).

Love this lens, no matter what camera it is mounted on!

A rainy, overcast morning and this guy came visiting after our half-year absence! His wife came, too!

Happy to be outside!

February has been a frustrating month, at least photography-wise. The series of Atlantic storms that happened to coincide with weekends have made getting out a bit difficult. I did manage to get out with my V2 and J5 on Sunday. Here are a few shots, just taken in the area around my house.

Hoping for more photographic opportunities as the days get longer!

Re: Happy to be outside!

Those are all nice images. I'd never heard of "barking deer" before and would very much like to see one unobstructed sometime. Very interesting. The trees also make good subjects and compositions.

Re: Happy to be outside!

Thanks. These deer are natives of southeast Asia but there is quite a large population in parts of the United Kingdom, all descended from animals that escaped from captivity. Below is a shot where you can see more of the deer, again taken with my V2. They are quite small, about the size of a large dog.

Some recent random March photos from Phoenix
1

I like to take along at least an N1 body and 10-100 whenever I'm out running errands for the unexpected opportunities I stumble upon.

I had to Google this to find out what it was, and I'm happy to report that even though it involves thread it does not also involve a needle.

Brow Threading Salon

Yet another geezer in an old Chevy, this time from 1957. Perhaps the guy saw one in the showroom in 1957 and has wanter his own ever since? At least it reminded me that there are more expensive hobbies than collecting and using N1 cameras and lenses.

1957 Chevrolet with period whitewall tires and fender skirts

No need for a hobby to spend a lot of money! The local Mercedes dealer has two in stock at the moment for only $142,000 (each).

Mercedes AMG V8 Biturbo roadster

I think it must have a Force Field option that repells all other lesser cars from parking nearby.

Thanks for posting this. What a strange animal, at least to someone who has never seen one before. Now I will have to do some research!

There are quite a lot of them where I live. They are fairly shy so they keep their distance (the reach of the V2 with 70-300 CX definitely helps). When we're out for a walk in the evening we often hear their barking calls but they're not always seen. Unfortunately, they're quite commonly seen dead at the side of the roads. I believe the entire UK population is descended from animals that escaped from a single estate in the 1920s. Apparently it's set to become the most common species of deer in England.

Roe deer are stil, the most common in Sweden, and no muntjacs yet!

Lovely shot! Tell us more, how did you do it, what ISO, stacked, or what?!

Test Shots of Sigma 100-400mm Contemporary on V1
2

Temperature is still too cold in my area (Washington, DC). Just got myself a brand new Sigma 100-400mm Contemporary (thanks to Tord’s recommendation) yesterday and couldn’t wait to test on home flowers first. Hopefully a few bird sightings will ensue in the coming weeks with this lens. Love the color rendition, contrast, and sharpness. It feels heavier than I thought.
