The local Eared Grebes and Horned Grebes have molted into their summer plumage:

Compare the summer plumage with the basic winter coloration (photos from the last two winters):

Doug -

 

I've always liked grebes, and your treatment of them only enhances that. Superb. I prefer the lower vantage point of the kayak borne shots.

Hey Doug you should have had the red eye thing on the camera on.

Ha, just kidding. I know it has red eyes. I like them all but number 2 is the one I like the most.

 

Cheers Jan

LOL good one!

 

Ben, the water was my flotilla of reflectors. I was typically using shutter speeds of 1/4000 or faster (ISO 400, f/6.8)

Hey Doug I picked up a R8 don't own the digital back so got a question when you used film on the 280 or the 560mm what did you like to use 400 film speed ?

100 when I could, 400 otherwise (all photos: 280mm f/4 APO).

A fantastic body of work. The squirrel and fox shots appeal to me most but in general I am just amazed by your skill and talent.

Doug,

 

All round excellence. I still marvel at how you get some of your shots from a kayak. I'd be scared stiff to take my DMR in case I dropped the thing in the soup!

 

Best wishes,

 

Charlie

I almost THREW it in the lake when I found that my loon photos (at 20') were overexposed because the mode switch got bumped from (m) to (a). The mode switch is getting a healthy dose of gaffer's tape.

Wow, great shots with film. I like Fuji pro 160c and there 400h I have film on order so hope to get out there and see what I can do. I'm sure the camera can do it, it's me that will have the trouble.

 

Cheers Really like the extra pics.

I had this combination for a while (sans kayak...

) and I know what a handful that 560 is.

 

Just incredible work.

      I have a rather marvellous 400mm Telyt. It has a male 39mm O.D. thread which is bigger than the standard LTM. The normal way to connect it to an M series camera is to use a 16466 M which provides the matching female thread to a male M bayonet (23mm flange-to-flange), plus a Visoflex I or II which has M-bayonet to M-bayonet to connect to the camera and is 41mm flange-to-flange. The Visoflex houses the reflex mirror plus bits sticking out to set and trigger the mirror.
      Now that I have an SL, I don't need the Visoflex. It would be nice to replace it with a simple 41mm spacer with M-bayonets on each side. i.e a dummy Visoflex. Does such a thing exist?
      Alternatively I could replace both the Visoflex and the16466 with a 64mm spacer, 39mm female thread to male M-bayonet. Does such a thing exist?
      The third alternative is disassemble the Visoflex. I haven't tried that. If I do, what problems might I face?

      As the saying goes "Birds of a feather flock together". I spotted these gulls taking advantage of a pontoon to have a rest after a hard rainstorm. I found it fascinating that they were all facing exactly the same way.
      Leica M240 + 35mm Summarit f2.5. Shot as .dng and converted to black and white in Lightroom Classic.
      Hope you like it
