Bee-Eaters
7

A couple of weeks ago I saw some bee-eaters through the window. They were flying between some trees that were a bit far away. This one perched in a bush with a white wall as a backdrop, which was good to isolate the subject in the photograph. The picture is heavily cropped, but I really like it.

Shocking photos from today
3

At least the color is rather shocking IMO. Seen today outside a doctor's office nearby, I had to make a U-turn when I saw it to get some photos.

This is a Tesla for those who may not recognize this all electric car. There are many on the road here in Phoenix, but never before seen in such a color. So, is this factory paint, or a high end after market job? Note that the metal flake paint makes the car look like it is dusted with glitter.

V2, 10-100, raw processed in Photoshop.

That's something I never thought of. I wouldn't even know how to tell them apart from a casual glance, and I don't think I'd get away with a "scratch test" on it to fond out! But now that you have suggested this possibility I'll look a lot closer if I ever find it around again.

Fiery Sunset

The wildfire east of San Diego has blanketed our whole region with smoke and ash.  This made tonight's sunset color spectacular.   Attempted to capture it.  Exposure compensation was at -3 but...

lovely - something about it is almost Japanese with the delicate lines and colours

Close up of an Alstroemeria flower

Just playing around to get some depth of field and keep near base iso in dull conditions ( 11 ev )

Taken with a V2 and 1.8/50 g afs with a 3 dioptre achromat and f2 and 1/640 sec. Took a 1 sec 15 fps burst handheld while focussing from front to back manually then focus merging in Affinity.

I don't think the FX lens is very sharp at this pixel density unfortunately - still looking for a bright cheap lens that is OK

Thanks!  Our air is still full of ash although the fire in our nearby mountains seems under controlled and about half contained.  This is tonight's sunset, a little better.

Terrific shots of the Leaf Cutter. I think it is time for me to start searching for a VR 300/4 and trade in my older 300/4 without VR.

We had some around the house in Thailand (there was a dam nearby that they used as a hunting ground, and the big trees in the garden). Not that easy to catch well!
