Very nice sharp photo of that hummingbird! I believe that you are going to love that body/lens combo. I love mine! Best regards, Dean

Excellent macro of the two bubble bees. The photo held up well when I viewed it at 100%. I hope that the bees were not harmed when you had to flip them over to determine their sex! Sorry, I couldn't resist that one... Best regards, Dean

Hey Dean, thanks. Good thing for me that the female bee was absolutely shameless, readily displaying her Corbicula for the world to see. I guess I just bring it out in them.

Had a fleeting trip to Scotland and Glen Coe, was sometimes hard as one of my friends is Disabled so we have to park and shoot not much walking happens, but I think we managed to get some good ones

Sony A1 combo of 24-105 and Sigma 14-24 F2.8 and a selection of Lee filters mainly Big Stopper and some URTH screw ons. Im not a Landscape guy I do Sports but it was fun learning. The Scenery is amazing, just glad it didn't rain.

Fantastic set of images. It looks like you got more good shots on your brief visit than I got when I spent a week there (ok in my defence it was more or less non stop rain the entire time).

Wow - that was one interesting photo. It took the eye all over the shot, inviting examination of all  the shadows and detail. Well done.

Thanks. I look for interesting lighting on the home - shadows and all!  Usually  early through mid morning, or late afternoon. Another one:

I quite like this image.  You have a good eye and your capture and processing were spot on.
