By the way, do any of you have the 40mm pancake maybe? If so, I was wondering how that STM focus thingy works exactly. I read some problems with it? I forgot what it was exactly though, something about the lens going to sleep in certain conditions, or something... :rolleyes:
The lens is included in Canon's current cash back action and it would be almost ridiculously cheap to get it now.
However, the other lens I'm thinking about is the old 35mm f/2. Does that thing have the same focus system as the 50mm f/1.8 II? Anybody know that?

I find it very difficult to choose between them. I need something half way decent for street shots as I find 50mm too long. If anybody has any thoughts about it, I would love to hear them!

So sorry to hear about all the back problems, hope the various treatments help make you feel better soon.

Great shots from everyone, Pepper is sooo cute Stina, think I like the second shot best Paula, and lovely set Penel. There are quite a few egrets where we stay in Norfolk too, they are very noticeable on the marsh although usually a good distance away.

Nothing much been happening here, had a couple of good walks over the weekend so I will post some pics from then.

We were in the park before some of the residents were up

and some grebes with some greenery - not sure if it was food, nesting material or in one of the photos it looks like it might be going on the head as a hat!!

Speaking of Grebes. I photographed a couple of old friends of mine last week. I followed them in 2010 when they started with 3 chicks of which only one survived and made it to adulthood. Well, I went looking for them last week and was delighted to find them in the same spot. And with offspring.
Here's just one shot (I have more but haven't processed them yet). It's a pity they are in the canal and I can't get down to the water level. Still, I'm pleased with the shot.

Thanks Levina, they're bluebells. Badgers are really difficult to photograph as they are so shy so I"m thrilled to have seen this one, and v grateful to the friend who took me to the area.

ahh this is lovely, what a great story too. Cute cute cute.

couple more of the badger from last night. The moment the pheasant appeared behind her, she chased it off resulting in loads of squawking and flapping, and then the badger went back into the sett!

That is so cute Levina, I haven't seen baby grebe before, will keep an eye on the pair here for the patter of tiny wings!

Love the badgers Penel, I have only ever seen one, and the bluebells make the shots even more special.

Digsmum, Levina, and Penelope--both of you take such amazing photos; I am so jealous! I am especially envious of the badger photos...what a fantastic adventure you had to witness and photograph one in such a gorgeous setting!


I'd rather be shooting!

ouch I send lots of sympathy, I had a bulging disc about 4 years ago. Loads of pain for about 7 months. Acupuncture and Pilates are what fixed me but it took a long long time.

At last the sun has appeared in Norfolk :D the last couple of days have been rather dull. Still managed a spot of photography though. Went to Hickling Broad yesterday afternoon for a wander and the highlight was hearing (not seeing!) a Bittern. Amazing noise and it was really close but we waited for ages and it didn't appear.

and a sedge warbler

I"m going out later with a guy who lives here - he's taking me to a badger sett he's been photographing for a while now. V exciting - must stop talking and keep still, could be tricky :lol:

Great set, Penel. I don't want to take a whole page up quoting everyone, so I deleted some of the pics. I think this pic is sweet.

Thanks Stina. Quiet in here lately - where are you all? it's our last day of holiday today, we're travelling home tonight as I need to be back for dog training in the morning. I had a good afternoon yesterday with a friend at an RSPB reserve - loads of these little Sedge Warblers around.

Loving all the nature shots, Ladies! I am waiting for a client to come for photos, then I am going to hobble out in to the world to get some errands run.

Joayne, keep us updated on how you are faring......

Thanks for thinking of me MO.. I had a consult with the Neurosurgeon yesterday..
I have two bulging and one herniated disc.. I also have 6 rather than 5 lumbar vertebrae!

It was a hoot watching the doctor count the discs to make sure what she was seeing...
I am going with pain management rather that surgery. The surgeon pushed this treatment and I feel it was an honest decision on her part and a long but better decision for me.

I have yet to see the pain management doctor, but I have been given a lot of drugs to get ready for the treatments. I slept for 6 straight hours last night, which is a record.
I've been sleeping in 2 to 3 hour segments so.. Hopefully in 3 to 6 months, I will be walking without looking straight down to the ground  :p

Keep posting all the lovely photos.. I'm looking, but typing on the iPad is not that easy. .. . And my spelling abilities are diminishing with the introduction of medication :rolleyes:

Mo.. I hope you are doing better. Get rest and you should stay off your feet!
