Crested pigeons on my back power lines - all puffed up - it was cold. Walked to the pharmacy and unexpectedly saw kangaroos on the oval and even closer to Drakeford Drive on my way back. Indication of how little feed there must be and how dry it is. Also... Continue reading

"Thygo is a better photographer than me" - I think that is not necessarily so. Full marks for those shots. Sure can get some surreal outputs too. I have read about HDR but never tried it yet - always seemed like another daunting software adventure ... Even for the D90 which has a bracketing setting. I always wanted to try this in dimly lit church interiors but still with bright light coming through high windows. (slow shutter speeds though, so tripod almost essential) But now cameras do it 'in camera' - D7200 does (but I still haven't tried it). You can also do bracketing to get your HDR starting images without a bracketing setting - though this is where the camera being on a tripod really helps so each image is of the same scene and angle. You set the aperture and then take several images in range from underexposed (eg -1.0EV, -0.7, -0.3, 0, +0.3 etc) ...

I did eat the end of a danish salami while I was cooking ... You don't need to worry about me becoming a vegetarian. I just make sure I eat vegies.

Crested pigeon, Ocyphaps lophotes, sitting on the crest of my roof this afternoon. They come to get a drink from the duck pond and normally nervous, flighty birds even on the roof, but this one stayed put for me. So impressed with the 70-300 AF-P. as shot cropped cropped some... Continue reading

I resorted to Google with your clues - light source, 5MP and macro. Is it this beastie? - Dino-Lite Edge AM7115MZTW 2X~50X 5.0MP Metal Handheld Macro Digital Microscope
