Just a dash of color
among the earth tones. I was always a fan of the earth tones and it's the time of year when they are at their best.

Olympus Stylus 1 "vs" OM-D E-M5 Mk II
I currently have a Stylus 1, which has a 2.8 constant aperture lens, albeit a small 1/1.7. I like it's portability and the fact that its range is an equivalent 28-300. I've been looking at the current "deal" at Olympus USA on the OM-D E-M5 Mk II with the 14-150mm F4.0-5.6 II lens. One of the reasons I bought the Stylus (instead of an M10 at the time) was that I didn't particularly want to have to be changing lenses, especially when traveling.

I want more detail in pictures than I'm now getting. I shoot JPEG, not RAW, and do some processing - typically cropping, etc. I don't blow pictures up and rarely print - in fact, you'd probably call me a pixel peeper, not a photographer. Oh, well.

I'd appreciate your opinion(s): will the great features of the M5 provide a lot more detail, given the difference in aperatures - constant vs variable.

Thanks for your comments. I really enjoy this forum and feel like I've learned a lot over the past several years.

Iceland: Views Around Reykjavik
Reykjavik, with a few exceptions, is not a very photogenic city - especially in grey rainy weather. Here are a few shots I thought you might enjoy.

A hungry pellie.
I was at Brooms Head one day & a fisherman was cleaning fish near a little rock pool. This pellie was enjoying a free feed. Downloading is recommended.

Honey Bee (Apis)
Luckily, the bees didn't care if it was dark and raining today!

Honey Bee (Apis)
W. Kentucky, USA - 9/24/2018
1/400 - f/8.0 - ISO 1600

Interesting Tidbit: Honey bees must gather nectar from two million flowers to make one pound of honey.
One bee has to fly about 90,000 miles – three times around the globe – to make one pound of honey.
The average bee will make only 1/12th of a teaspoon of honey in its lifetime. ~Matter of Trust~

My, My, What Big Eyes You Have.
At least some of these images have probably been posted before, I am going through an external drive and when I come across some winners I can't help but reprocess them again, another reason why it is good to shoot RAW.

Anyway this is an Ant Mimic Jumping Spider, the first image was shot with a macro lens at full 1:1 macro, for anyone who has experience with macro lenses this will give you some indication about how tiny this spider is as that is an actual macro shot of this bug. If you were to see it on your patio you would probably mistake it for an ant just as I at first did when I saw it. The other 4 shots were taken with a reversed lens set up on extension tubes. All of these images except the first one have been cropped and also downsized for posting to the web. One thing about downsizing images, if you did not already know this it does help reduce noise in your image. These images really have to be downloaded to be fully appreciated.

Images were taken with a Canon 5DS (Which actually I am selling and it has fewer than 1200 actuations) with an old 28mm Vivitar f/2.5 Closeup lens reverse mounted to a full set of M42 extension tubes. Camera settings were ISO 400, 125th Second, f/11, manual flash set at either 1/8th or 16th power.
