Looks like a snake. Am I wrong?

Regardless, it is quite a nice photo.

It may be the UK smooth snake, perhaps. It isn't a lizard, as snakes don't have eyelids and don't blink.

It's actually a legless lizard, the only such creature native to Britain.

Early impressions just snapping around the house and what not...AF and IBIS is amazing.

Testing my Sigma 135mm Art and it's nailing everything wide open and I am getting sharp shots hand holding at 1/20 shutter speed like WTF hahaha!

It probably catches fairly large-size meals :)

Yeah, I looked again, and zoomed to 100%, I guess I can make out the eyelids or at least what appears to be eyelids that can be closed. At first glance, it didn't look like that creature had any ability to blink. :) And the thin DOF made it impossible to see if there were ear holes or not. Great pic nonetheless.

We had a crazy warm day yesterday. From weeks of too cold weather to too warm overnight. Literally. Anyway, I went out, looking for birds. And I saw a bird I hadn't photographed, nor seen before, so it's a lifer. I believe it is a Northern wheatear. A really pretty bird and very comfortable with me being there.

And just as I had switched back to using the 400/5.6L as I saw Barn swallows, this White wagtail started bug hunting.

They do appear in Europe too, including the south-east of the Netherlands (chalky terrain) and Belgium.
As a kid I used to go out and catch them occasionally - and release then unharmed :).

Over here we call them "hazelworm". Latin name is Anguis fragilis.

Beautiful animals IMO. And a nice picture!

Kind regards, Wim

So noticed a bit of a quirk with the auto focusing; I know dual pixel auto focus can struggle with horizontal contrast due to the way the pixels are arranged but I noticed in certain situations (in this case my sofa and my wall/skirting) even if there is a super clear contrast line (in the example of the sofa the gap between the headrest and the back cushion, it's a clear black gap separating the two parts) the camera would just refuse to lock on focus even in good light, but the same black gap vertically it'll lock on straight away. What's funny though is I tried shooting the grout line between my grey tiles which has much, much less contrast but it locks on fine no problem.

Apart from that the auto focus is nothing short of amazing.

Also I noticed my EVF can sometimes get laggy (I think it's when lighting is low) is that normal?

Thanks!

Owning a 100-400mm has let me do so many Cityscapes that weren't possible with a Wide Angle lens, like this one below

I bought a new bird feeder yesterday which is a mealworm feeder. Today it was absolutely mental in the garden with starlings galore!!

LOL
Starlings are great fun, especially youngsters with their non-stop begging. They're relentless and parents start to look really scruffy after a while! :-P

I like the shot a lot, Paul.
And I always love birds in a field/on grass when there are flowers.
