  1. Nice series Denis! My days of humping big lenses are over now, I have absolutely no regrets about buying my Panasonic FZ2000 camera, the 20x optical zoom gives you an equivalent of 24-480mm in 35mm terms, this doubles to 960mm when the iZoom setting is used.

    It was a very interesting holiday Korky, Ecuador is such a diverse country the capital Quito is the second highest in the world at 9,300ft above sea level. The Andes.
  3. Taken in the Amazon Basin in Ecuador. Me sat on the equator. A Market in Quito.
  4. An isolated spot indeed! I have no idea where the shots were taken though. This thread isn't used much which surprises me.
  5. Most of the wild Hops I see are growing up the stay wires of telegraph poles. This is how they are normally supported.
  6. I often see wild Hops growing in my area, when I was very young I used to go Hop picking with my mother, hops were grown over a wide area in Herefordshire and Worcestershire. Some of the Hop Yards were only a few hundred yards from where I live now, unfortunately they are now housing estates and some of the roads are named after varieties of Hops. There are some Hops still grown in Herefordshire, they seem to be short varieties grown these days and not the 12ft tall vines I remember.
  7. The last shot is my favourite... nice one!
  8. The first three are excellent... well captured!
  9. I have dug these from my files, taken July 2015. Canon EOS 60D ,Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM 1/20s f/11.0 at 100.0mm iso400
  10. This is great Polly! I might visit soon but I doubt any photos I take will be so good.
  11. Some late flowers in my little garden. Penstemon. Penstemon. Penstemon. Fushia. All images taken with my Panasonic DMC-FZ2000 camera.
  12. One thing I have noticed is that this species of Damselfly rests with it's wings out from it's body like Dragonflies, most other species of Damselflies rest with their wings along the length of their body. I am going to check if this always the case and not only with my sightings.
  13. Thank you for Polly! Your feedback is appreciated. As I said I have only ever come across this species a couple of times and that has been at the same pool in the Forest of Dean in different summers. Here is a shot I took in July 2014, the only other time I've seen one. Canon EOS 60D ,Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM Sigma macroflash, 1/250s f/16.0 at 100.0mm iso400
  14. They are both nice images but I think No2 just has the edge.
