Is it me or does anyone else think the fact black scorpions glow under UV light is cool.

Haven't heard to much about free parties in Thailand though if there was I'd be more worried about stepping on a cobra! Sadly those don't glow under UV either.

70-200mm f/2.8 is waaaaay more expensive
The Canon RF mount lens with those specs is definitely on my wishlist. The ƒ4 variant is something like $1,000 USD cheaper. Even still that's something like $1,800 for the ƒ4 and $2,800 for the ƒ2.8, neither of which is by any means cheap. With that said though, I watched reviews of both and they seem to be outstanding lenses when paired with the R5. I do sort of wish that my 24-105mm was an ƒ4 and not a ƒ4-7.1 though.

On a side note, the one thing I do really like about the EOS RP is that it's really compact and light. It's definitely something I appreciate about it.

I had the Canon EF 70-200 f/4. I didn't miss the extra speed the 2.8 brought for my purposes, and I was fortunate to have picked it up used, but in mint condition.
I have been experimenting with a mirrorless u4/3rd camera, not a fan of the small and light. I'm too used to working with tanks like the Nikon D3x or Canon EOS 1D Mark II N.

We had a nice day, and so I took out my cheap chinese axiexpress pocket watches to photograph.
Canon EOS-1D Mark II N (on a tripod)
f/5.6
1/100sec shutter speed
100mm Tamron Macro lens
ISO 100
White Balance set to sunny.

For the Soviet Molnija pocket watch the settings were as follows:
same camera same lens
f/8 0.6sec shutter (on a tripod naturally)

The Illinois watch is something of a mystery, I cannot find a date on it,though I know it was my father's father's watch
same camera same lens
f/8 0.25sec shutter speed (again, on a tripod)
ISO 100
Natural light from a window
AWB

I wasn't quite prepared for this kind of shot, but I was driving around and stumbled upon this guy feeding the seagulls to calm music at the beach. It's not as sharp as it could have been, but it was definitely neat to see. I also used it as an opportunity to work on my dedusting skills in GIMP.

May I have your permission to use the amber colored watch picture on the far left as my Steam/Techpowerup profile picture? If not it is ok. I just really like it and it would go well with my theme in my signature... lol

One hour north of Glasgow.

Otters (unfortunately not wild - in a wee wildlife park). Picture taken with effort to miss links of fence. The joy of focus blurring.
And FWIW, these wee guys (Asian Otters) were playing and prancing. They were happy little critters. This is a 'love in'.

Spotted a bird of prey and after a car chase, my wife spotted it in a tree.

And sunset over Loch Earn. Had to wait about 20 mins until the sun was in line with the ruined jetty. So freakin' cold. Also managed to frame the ducks.

I was just visiting Washington DC and the Tomb Guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier was probably the exact opposite of that description. The ritual they follow is insanely strict with 21 being the basis for everything. 21 seconds and 21 steps. Unfortunately I missed the changing of the guard.

I have been wanting a smaller camera since i got my Nikon D7200. I just don't take it anywhere. A mirrorless? Too much $. Anyway, fate has it that my cat helped my decision.
He knocked my D7200 off the table. Broke the top LCD but not much else. I can still use it, but I can't get past the damage. I always like my D3100 before I sold it. So, I picked up a Nikon D3400.
I like the size and all my lenses fit.

This is just outside my apt
