Things have gotten testy around the hummingbird feeder today. This was 3 shots in a row at 18fps pro capture L. The most in focus collision I got since they leave the focal plane so incredibly fast.

And when you banish a foe, a short rest is in order. But he shouldn't close his eyes even for one second....

Why wouldn't you take the 75-300 along if you had one? Its smallness is a lot of its appeal. When I had one on the E-M5iii, it was like carrying nothing at all, and it could fit in a coat pocket.
Because they don't understand that when imaging reptiles in the SW every once counts in that heat, they think the G9/100-400 is so much better. But at lower ISO's with fast shutter speeds the 75-300 does a good job for me...

Oh, it does a good job, but I see the difference between it and G9+PL100-400 (which I currently own). It should be better though, since the PL100-400 costs and weighs 3x as much.

Yes, I probably shot 30-40K with my PL and it is a better lens, but for hiking in the desert oz. really do count.....I'd rather have a couple of more water bottles.

I'm seriously considering dressing up in a fish costume to see if I can ever get close enough to a Kingfisher for a decent shot. This one has been hanging around a local lake and it's almost as if he takes great pleasure in tormenting me.

Had some hopes of getting some common linnet shot today, but no luck. Instead had some luck with Euro Goldfinch and Shrikes.
all with the telescope and mc14 @840mm.

Spotted this lovely seagull. Shame about the busy background.

Urban bird portraits. Though most people despise them, I actually find the bright red eyes and iridescent feathers of pigeons quite cool!
