Nice sunny afternoon in the garden where I spotted this small common darter soaking up a bit of warmth in the late afternoon sun.

Nicely captured Maurice, have you ordered a 100>400mm or are you negotiating with Santa !!! if you are looking for something long reach for birds have you thought about a vintage lens remembering the effective focal length will be double on your camera

Hello Peter, Yes the new lens is very much on my mind, (So is the bank balance !). I've been l also looking at the Panasonic equivalent as one or two second hand ones are on eBay. The new Olympus is being released tomorrow 6th. If I can contain myself I'm hoping the price will come down in the new year to circa £800 / £850 then I will go for it.
