Cool …. What is the lens used for this one Geoff.

 

Vicky x

 

It's a Nikon (Nikkor) 55-300mm on a Nikon D5000 body, on full telephoto, at a distance of about 10m. Early morning - about 6am. I got the lens secondhand on an Ebay auction, but it's in mint condition. It's no good for proper wildlife photography, but it's perfect for the back garden.

Nice set-up though Geoff, that would be equal to 110-600mm in the old film format.

That's a spooky looking old tree.  It's done well to still be standing after the weekend before last's winds.  Maybe it's the woodpeckers holding hands that's keeping it upright.  Or the woodworms . . . :lol:

Three green giants.  Or at least part of Michael's 2018 carbon exchange scheme - the more I drive the Zed, the taller they seem to become. :D

All done with canon .706D with a 100-400 mk1 telephoto lens .

 

now traded in mk1  lens for a new 100-400 IS mk11 telephoto lens and bought a new canon 7D mkii with extra battery hand grip there is a fab differance in quality in the new lens .

 

the 760D is a great camera,  I like the touch screen so easy to change things around,  the 7D has no touch screen but so much in spec taking a little while to remember things to change to get what I am looking for in a photo.

 

love taking wild life pics , and travel pics .

In today's wasp news, well, over the last two days I've been annoyed by my local BBC radio station (quel surprise).  Yesterday morning, they sent one of their eejit reporters out to enquire as to whether people were screamers, runners, swatters or sprayers with the surprising number of wasps around and about this year.  Someone then observed that it's a hot summer, so there are lots of wasps about, "no you know what, Sherlock".  Then, this morning's eejit presenter, apropros of nothing asked rhetorically (if he knew what it meant) "what's the point of wasps".  As a self-confessed friend of wasps I was tempted to text in and ask "what's the point of you, more like", but couldn't be bothered.

 

Then, a few hours' later, as I was finishing my lunch this hornet fell down our chimney . . . 

 

IMG_20180811_131252191.jpg

 

I apologise for the terrible picture, but it was a bit agitated (although I suppose I would be had I fallen down our chimney) and I was keen to get it out of the house asap, as it was over an inch long too.  It then went out to play with the neighbours, and I disappeared off in the Zed fairly swiftly.

They've built a film set just up the road from work. 

 

Film Set.jpg

 

On Thursday there were lots of people in costume heading to the set (in the rain!) but they wouldn't tell me what was being filmed.  The set is quite small so I wondered if it might be a small scene in a bigger production.  Doctor Who perhaps?

Good guess.  You might be right, with it being small and likely only briefly used.

 

I wasn't particularly bothered about watching the new series when it arrives, but if there's a chance your Zed might sneak into the background of a scene that might change.  :thumbs:

Paul .. Looks like some sort of London period drama, could be Ripper Street ?

Looks like one of those huge French ones that are arriving and taking out our native bee population, could be wrong though !! … BTW  I would not have even got that close.

I think you're probably right. I was in too minds about squashing it, but I've seen a few too many Eighties sci-fi films and therefore went a bit squeamish. If I see another one though I will, as we seem to have been doing quite well for bees this year and long may that continue. :)

We have 3 hives on our allotments and only 1 is producing any amount of honey, not sure why though as I do not get too close :excl: .

It might be the dry weather, as I heard something a month or so ago that said something to the effect that when there are long dry periods bees tend to focus more on keeping their hive hydrated by taking water back than they do on honey making.  So I think it might be just one of those years.

Not a panacea, but certainly a cure for the relatively minor ills of pre-packed tomatoes.

A nice little crop coming there... keep the feed/water going on to help those fruits fill out otherwise you will have pithy fruits.
