Sounds like fun Maureen! we went out on a Puffin watch Thursday afternoon.....the fog was pea soup and we saw ONE Puffin! LOL He did a flyby and the whole boat exploded with applause......I think he like the attention, so he did another flyby before disappearing into the fog. Needless to say because it was so wet, the camera didn't come with me. We just enjoyed the boat ride and the ONE Puffin! LOL The boat line gave us all a voucher for another Puffin watch for next year, so it was well worth it.
I'm keeping an eye on the sky today. We may go to Bangor to the marsh and see if we can get the Great Egrets before they fly out.

Hi, haven't been around for ages - glad to see the thread is still alive. Will be spending some time reading to catch up so apologies for not commenting on anything yet!

I have been busy with a poorly horse for most of my free time for the last month. Somehow he managed to injure a leg and had five days in equine hospital followed by box rest and is just (this week) back on restricted turn out. For a young horse he has been surprisingly good - but as he was only allowed out if someone was holding onto him I have spent a lot of time standing in fields! I won't post any photos of the injury but have a few phone pics (sorry if quality is rubbish) of the story so far.

The Xray (on the left just below the joint) shows a black smudge where the injury is deep to the bone

.... and this weekend at home, still bandaged but getting better slowly. Very slowly. And it will take even longer for my bank balance to get over the vet fees!

Hoping life gets back to normal soon and I can post some more fun shots!

Hey Emma! So sorry to hear this about the horse.
These injuries sure can be a challenge. Slow to heal.
At least there seems to be no infection in it.
I had a mare that had a puncture chip a bone in her fetlock joint and it got infected. We ended up doing surgery in my barn, and then it was complete stall rest, wraps and antibiotic shots for quite some time. I wish you the best as you deal with this! And best wishes for your buddy!!! <3

It's never good when your baby is hurting! :( There are worse things to have to do than stand out in a field. It makes you a farmer!

At the last vet visit we discovered that my fur baby is sensitive to vaccinations. She has grown a lump where she received her first round of shots. So now I have to monitor her, spread the rest of the shots out to two week intervals, and possibly have the lump removed if it does not resolve after three months. Fortunately, the vaccination manufacturer will pay for any treatment needed. But, in the meantime, it will take an additional 4 weeks to get all the shots taken care of. And then, after that, I can get her fixed. Hopefully she behaves herself and doesn't get pregnant!

Hope the horse continues to improve, Emma & nice to see you back.

Monterey was awesome; probably saw over 50 breachings but the sky was overcast & the same color gray as the water so it made the pictures difficult. I didn't photograph much but I will share a couple of close encounters. These are not cropped & on a full frame body!!!!

Wondering what straps or slings etc. other ladies have tried for their cameras. I've heard many good things about Black Rapids, but haven't given them a go yet. I picked up an inexpensive cross body sling made by case logic that is decent. Sits nicely across me even though I'm well-padded ;) It does have a padded wider section that sits in the shoulder which is nice. Do you ladies think it makes a difference to use a strap specifically made for women? Show or tell me about your favourite straps or slings or even the ones you hated, lol!

I use a Black Rapid strap and love it. I don't like the weight of the camera hanging from my neck, having the strap pull at my hair, or having the camera swing forward if I have to bend over. The BR strap is off the neck, holds a good amount of weight, and is easy to adjust. I can have the speed light on the camera and it will just hang upside down by my side. If I have to bend over, I can just push the camera behind my back. You can have the camera hang down at your hip, or up under your arm. I've even tightened it right up and rode my bike with my camera sitting at my chest, easily took one handed shots from chest level while riding.

That's a big one for me when I do macros of bugs, because I'm often shooting something on the ground or on low vegetation. A camera on a long strap is as unhandy as a shoulder bag for getting up and down.

My better camera is only a Canon G15, which is smaller than the DSLRs that most people here use most of the time. I don't use any kind of strap. I carry the G15 in a homemade bag, an informal purse, that hangs from a sort of belt. So the camera is on my hip when not in use.

The bag is functional rather than dressy. Here's an old photo of it. It's on a different strap now.

Just the regular original one. I've had it for quite awhile now. I see on the website that they have quite a few options now.

I have used my extensively. When I've gone on vacation my camera has been hanging from it for days on end and I've never had a problem with it, and it doesn't show any wear.
