Monday at RSPB Leighton Moss I thought I would try digiscoping again. The main issue was the vibration even though everything was mounted firmly with a hide clamp. An issue that is all to common with wildlife photography was the Otters arrived performed and went 15min before i got to the hide.
I placed the wildlife camera in the same place to see if I could capture more video of the Stoat. After three days all I had was the Pheasants, then on the last day 5 2min videos of the Badger. Mind you I had also sprinkled a few Peanuts.
Very impressed with the speed of the focussing and the image quality even at high ISO. I used it at Chester zoo the other day on Shutter priority with auto ISO. I wanted to try it out and I am very impressed. Next testing is Manual and auto ISO. But the speed of focussing even with my 100-400mm lens was what really impressed.
Well Christmas brought me an HD camera trap. So keep your eyes open for anything interesting I capture. The first task to to identify the cat (I think) that keep sneaking through our cat flaps an pinching Maisie’s (our cat) food from her bowl.
Hunting through old photos I came across this one from 1986 in Formentera. This is around the time I became fascinated with Lizards. I can still remember manually focussing as it came closer and closer. Finally for this image I had stretched up to the limit of being able to see through the viewfinder.
