At least we know a Hedgehog will use it, although this time Maisie had been in first and had some of the meat (bowl behind bricks). She is more interested in collecting friends and letting them run lose in the house.
We keep telling her they don’t want to be her friend, but as fast has we put them back outside she brings them back in. In this case she was back out again in 15 min so we are hoping she dropped it before the cat flap.
This was made from a video I shot recently using my iPhone and a spotting scope. The video was made with the free version of Lightworks. I used the free version to compare it with others I have used. The trimming of clips etc is very easy, but using text and effects has taken a bit of getting used to. As to whether I will continue to use this, well the jury is still out
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.
