That's a good camera you have, so you need decent memory cards.

It's a long link but helps in identifying genuine SD cards.
There are a lot of useless copies out there.

I went with the olympus em1ii, didn't fancy dropping another 500 for USB charging, that's about the only difference to me between the ii and iii.
Just need to get used to button placement, my thumbs are searching for buttons that aren't there at the moment

Is it safe buying cards on amazon these days? They're a lot cheaper but I've heard there are lots of fakes.

F****** hives

Was a bit worried this morning but not a squeek today thankfully.
Gave me a chance to play with the new camera between showers, will take some time to get used to it but the "pro capture" mode could be brilliant for macro, available light only but one of those folding diffuser/reflector jobbies should help.
Some extra megapickles and cleaner high iso won't hurt either.
Focusing wasn't great with a sigma 1.8 zoom so I don't think I'll get a 150-600.
Didn't realise Id need a mega fast card to use some functions(60fps raw excluded)

Even at a lowly 18fps I ended up with over a thousand crap photos to delete

"Kept waking up with coughing fits last night so I'll be at home today


Edit; could be a nomad bee?"


If you're coughing up Nomad Bees you should probably see a doctor (do you have hives too?)
In all seriousness hope you're OK mate. Take it easy and bombard it with 4 Berroccas a day.


It's all new to me aside from the usual suspects so I sometimes spend hours searching for ID's, that's half the fun of it for me.
A lot of the time you find out you can only narrow it down to a Genus, Family, or even Order unless you start examining dead ones under a microscope!
I've quite a few "insect" pictures

It does look like Nomad Bee from a quick look at online images though.


This is a good one for spiders

Here you go, I'm saying wasp looking at wings and head, and I suspect it's a juvenile version of the bigger wasps I've been trying to shoot on my lawn. From memory it was about 15-20mm

P5300959
The other ones are around 35mm and the thorax is proportionally bigger, and the yellow bands are thinner.
I suspect Paul will know

Kept waking up with coughing fits last night so I'll be at home today

The thorax is under the wings, I'll see if I can find a different angle of it in the morning, but it was black and yellow hoops. I'm no entomologist, anything like it gets called a wasp, bee or hover fly depending on hair, size or sting

That last one is so strange looking, its head seems large compared to the body.
Any idea what it is?

Getting a new camera seems a bit like getting a new landing net, I keep grabbing the old one so I don't get it dirty

The cricket is quite sharp.

These are aphids being farmed by ants, would hate to be an aphid knowing what the ants do to them.
I took about 30 shots for this one and it isn't great due to windy conditions at the time.



Focus stacked dragonfly




But my local park Trent Park at 6.45 am seems okay. F22 to get the starburst of the sun



I was out from 4.30 am until 11.30 and these are as good as it got, but hey ho not to worry.
Its a bit like fishing to me, not all about the catching. Being out there doing it is what its all about.

Literally anything from 1 shot perfect to 100+ and still no keeper!

With wild creatures in situ, you don't tend to have a lot of control over the situation most of the time.

That aphid(?) is well taken

I seem to take tons of shots for the odd keeper, I get loads like this
P4190522
Just missed focus but enough to reject it
P4190530
For any like this

I'd say I reject half my shots before they get to the computer, sometimes half of those that make it that far are rejected before import, and then maybe 10-20%of what's left actually get edited and exported.

My gardens pretty young so bug wise it's a bit sparse, plus I've had to rethink it a bit this year, it'll probably be a couple of years before I get a decent level of bug life which makes my macro stuff a bit challenging

It's been really frustrating lately, every morning my lawn is crawling with some large black and yellow wasps, they look like parasitic ones but they're so fast, unpredictable and skittish I just can't get a shot of them. If I was using film I think I would go bankrupt before I got one
