Poor conditions for a shot, I know. Its always a neat experience to witness a raptor attempt to feed right in front of you. I went out to the mailbox to put an envelope in and this one went after a group of songbirds right near me. Luckily it stayed around long enough for me to run in and get the camera.

This one and PeeBee's above are very nice.
They really do demonstrate how these humble lenses can perform.
Both these are sharp and detailed. Lovely photos.
Whilst the Pro lenses can certainly perform, these can too.

Thank you. In my opinion, the humble P45-150mm is a hidden gem of the M43 system. It's small, light, cheap and punches way above it's specification. Mine is one of my most used lenses.

On foot I could get much closer to Water Fowl but they seem to have an aversion to me in a kayak! Kayak is Camo and I wear camo and move slowly and stealthily via electric motor but I can never get nearer than about 80 metres.

Maybe on foot they think you can't swim (or rather wouldn't swim), but on water you could get to them?

Just got my MC-20 for my 40-150mm and these are some of the first photos from it. Egrets in rice field next to our house.

I've only ever seen a bluebird once before in the wild. Today, on a bitter cold day, somehow a flock of them showed up to the feeder!
