Another round of climbing photos, this time from Tuolumne Meadows. Love being able to alternate between detail and context shots:

After we returned from the trip we took in late June, I decided to take a break from the big guns and went shooting every day with just the E-M5.2 and the Panny 100-300.1. On one of my twice-daily walks I became aware that a new planting on a particular field had attracted a new critter – hummingbird hawk-moths. They are very active. They are also capricious and unpredictable. They stay at a given blossom perhaps 2 seconds, 4 at most. They were way beyond the 100-300’s quick-focus abilities – it can do perched butterflies and dragonflies well enough but these moths never light and even if they did, that would hardly be the point. This is action photography! I got close to a good image once or twice by tripping the shutter when the moth was in a pre-focussed zone. Close - but no cigar. I had also been frustrated by not being able to shoot even vaguely wide so I decided to give the 12-100 some quality time. What a difference! – even with the E-M5.2, which is by no means a great action camera. These were culled from a sequence of thirteen frames shot in S-mode with C-AF and auto-iso. Now, to manage both to get closer and refine settings. Come to think of it, I could also cheat and carry the E-M1.2/40-150/MC-14 combo. Hmmm...

Typical scene. Aside from Lightroom's Standard processing, no tweaks.



These are 100% crops.

First, the image above.
