Aloha, have been a subscriber to this forum for the last 3 yrs and enjoy every day. Since I bought my first Sony FI in the 80s I have been an avid photographer. Next month from Oct 6th to 21st I’m taking a Safari, four days in Kruger National forest and 11 days in Tanzania. I have a D7500, Two D810 cameras and several Nikon lenses. A 20mmF1.8,a 27-70-f2.8,80-200 F2.8, a 18-200mm F 3.5-5.6,a 28-300 F3.5-5.6,a 300mm PF F4 and 200-500mm 5.6 along with Nikon AF-S teleconverter TC-14EIII. From members who have done this Safari what would be recommendations if I were to carry two cameras and two lenses which I’m used to. Mahalo.

Maybe I'll see you in Kruger. I'll be there Oct 2-11. I use Canon and I'm taking a Tamron 18-400 on my crop sensor and a 24-105L on my full frame.

The caterpillar eats the Milk Weed but I guess its defense from it being eaten is its brisling coat.

Great shot!

looks like it's on sale for just about half price $329; guess that means there is probably a new lens coming out. I've read the views; maybe for the purist it would not be the lens to buy, but, for me, the reviews are 4 stars or more. Anyone have one with some practical experience using it ?

Yes, I have one. I like it very much. I don't use it all the time - just when I know wide angle is the way to go. I get beautiful, sharp shots with it.

That doesn't look like any honey bee I've ever seen!

Hand held at 600mm. Distance was about 125-150 feet.

Canon 5Dsr - Canon 300 2.8 II - Canon 2x III - 1/1328 - f/5.6 - ISO @ 1000.

I guess that's what is meant by "biting off more than you can chew"!

Golden evening light, sweet pea blooms, probably last of the year, and the hummingbirds took advantage. I was out helping my wife with her gardening when I noted the hummers visiting the few remaining blooms. I raced in and grabbed my D500 with my Nikkor 200-500 f5.6 attached and a tripod. Managed to get 225 shots-most very nice. I was setup about 50 feet away. Could not move closer due to some intervening planters blocking my move towards the bloom/birds. They buzzed my head a few times, so I do not believe my presence was a problem. But I had to crop the images some because I could not get in closer.

1/2000, f5.6 ISO low for this camera- around 720 to 800. I was so flabbergasted by the birds' continued interest in the blooms that I failed to push the shutter speed up to freeze the wings and I left the zoom at 500mm so the shots are a bit soft.

Anna's hummingbirds, immature I believe. The iconic red throat did not show well leaving me thinking they were immature birds, possibly female. The back and sides in some shots shows a bit of the green noted on mature individuals.

What do you think?

I think the proper name is Millers Butte - it's not referencing backsides!

My camera clubs monthly outing was to the San Diego Zoo yesterday.

Lovely! It's been a long time since I visited the San Diego Zoo but I remember that it was very well designed. I particularly liked the indoor arctic display with the penguins.

This is a squirrel proof birder feeder arrangement that has worked for me for years. With an aggressive squirrel, you may have to adjust the baffle height or raise the entire system.

My squirrels are geniuses! They can figure out how to conquer anything I put up.

Yeah, Hemingway loves cats....I just forgot about it. Thanks

I seem to remember that all the cats are interbred and have 5 toes. Is that still the case?

It's been a tough year around here for Dahlia growers with the wettest spring in recent history followed by almost no rain at all and extreme heat (90+) for 6 to 8 weeks after that. Overall entries in our local show where less than half the normal amount, but some of the one's entered were indeed exceptional once again!

Anyway, my wife and I are suckers for these big blooms, but had nothing worth showing this year and that was a big disappointment for her. I've posted a few photos from the show that I hope illustrate the beauty and variety of these special flowers. Please consider that most of these blooms are over 8" across with some as big as 12" and you'll realize what I mean about "Big Blooms."

Overall, I think some of the photos turned out pretty good considering the show is inside a local Mall, the flowers are all displayed on tables behind barriers, I shot them all low key style and hand held with my K3's built in flash, and I could not manipulate or reposition the flowers in any way. Your comments are welcome and thanks for looking. Enjoy!
