Couple from this morning

Recommended Posts

The BG in the first one is a bit busy for me mike.  I'm intrigued by the water droplets at the bottom.  Taken through a window?  The second shot is everything the first isn't.  Lovely work.

I love both of these....when I had my Sony gear, I used to spend hours getting BIF shots by our local pool, of the same species ....

But my eye/retinal problems leading to serious retinal surgery put paid to all of that....I do have  200mm lens for  my GX8 but birding doesn’t seem the same somehow, so I concentrate on my Street series.

I chose the Panasonic GX8 solely because of its excellent tilt-able viewfinder, a very real asset to a one-eyed old fogey, post surgery....thankfully, except for serious double vision both eyes now see well ....a prism in one lens prevents me from seeing two of everything.

I will be for ever grateful to my amazing NHS eye surgeon ....he performed miracles.

Thanks, the first is an environment shot with the houses in the background for another little project, I agree its far too busy for a bird study, the water droplets are the top of a fountain.

Thanks for the kind words, sorry to hear about your eye issues, mine is a mobility problem my walking is very limited now so my jaunts are with the aid of a mobility scooter.

I did have a GX8 it's a great camera, the only reason I parted with it was handling, I had a very stiff 100-400 and I found zooming it made me press buttons I didn't want to press
