I just came back from a birding trip to Southeastern Costa Rica that gave me chance to evaluate the Micro Four Thirds lens Panasonic Leica 100-400 mm under field conditions. Here are my thoughts! Continue reading Five Rare Birds and the Panasonic-Leica 100-400 MFT lens
There is a lot of talk on the Internet about the Nikon Z7 capabilities for wildlife photography, especially of birds in flight. I took out the Z7 for the kind of bird photos I normally do and I am very, very happy with the results. Continue reading Bird photography with the Nikon Z7

When I went to Peru of course I had to visit the famous Guano Islands that were so important for harvesting bird droppings to make fertiliser and saltpetre. There are still huge guano deposits from the enormous seabird colonies that live there. Continue reading Peru’s Palomino Islands
