  • That first picture is a prizewinner.  I think it is really terrific on all sorts of levels. The rocks with the channels for blood are truly creepy once you explained their history. Brrr.... Very ...

    Love those eyeballs! Have you ever been in a swarm of these?  There was one in my neighborhood about 5 years ago, and it was really impressive.  Fortunately it was only really huge for one day, but ...
  • Replied in Thanks, all!
    I appreciate all of your comments! I know flower macros are not a lot of people's thing, so I really thank you all for taking the time to look at these. I thing once you get bitten by the flower ...
  • The Shirley Poppies are up and the Zinnias are starting this week, joining the Echinacea and Rudbeckia.  A few arthropods visited the flora, rounding out the assortment this week. Painted Lady ...
  • Well, I detested the Pan 25mm f1.7, but I think your copy is worse than even mine was. I sold it and got the PL25mm f1.4, (which I had had before), and which is a super lens.... -J
  • I think it depends on the camera you have.  I've had to clean my M43 sensors only a couple of times in the 5 or so years I have owned (many) of them.  My GH2 required a wet cleaning because of ...
  • I would venture to guess that everyone who has owned this lens has done this at least once (myself included)...... ;) . -J
  • Replied in Don't laugh...
    I regularly used the 100-300mm on my GM5, with great success. It takes a bit to get used to holding the lens instead of the camera when shooting with it, but it really works quite well. The only ...
  • Because every other 200-800mm FF equivalent lens is at least twice the weight of this one. Haven't you gotten off your soapbox long enough to sell yours yet (since you hate it so much?) -J
  • DOF....Focus was on the tree trunks on the far right.  The upper left corner is quite a bit further away (like 1/4 mile), and I was not in hyperfocal range for it to be in focus. -J
  • For instance, I just started adding in the Kenko extension tubes for macro work, and have been having just a blast with the setup.... -J Painted Lady butterfly on Echinacea Butt end of a Long ...

    You betcha ;) -J
  • Replied in Live a little!
    Ha, ha, ha, been there done that.  I now carry a spare in my pocketbook (which I always have with me), just in case I forgot to put the one in the camera back, or put a spare in the camera bag..... -J
  • See my favorite example of atmospheric distortion below: (Warm air over very cold water, barge at air/water interface area = amazing distortion out at 400mm!) -J And here is an example of how it ...
  • Replied in GX8
    Really a great camera, and big but not gigantic (grip is just the right size, without being ginormous, to handle the 100-400mm) Has the 20MP sensor, and is a really great match all around for the ...

    Actually, knowing Leo, he would have rolled over and started purring.  Either way, portrait opportunity would have been lost ;) -J

    Mr. Leo in a particularly comfortable spot on the porch...I was on my way out to the backyard with the 100-400mm on to shoot some flowers, and spied him lounging happily, across the porch as I ...

    Ensconced on a chair on the porch today :)  : -J
  • It does not matter where it was done, anytime you have a procedure, it messes with your brains for a while, even with local anesthesia. I had a breast lump biopsy done under local, and was planning ...
  • Replied in Error
    Probably not, but the temptation was far too great, methinks ;) -J
