@ Jozioau, Wētāpunga
I fully agree with the camera-development view.
Looking at 'what I bring home' after a day of shooting, what still astonishes me, is the number of 'lesser' shots, that each would have made my day 10 years ago.
The unfortunate effect is, that I keep far too many shots.
Be yourself; everyone else is already taken

Yes we did. There were 4 buzzards and only one bait. This shot was taken almost at the same time.

Thanks guys, I totally agree with all the above especially the excess number of keepers. There is a downside too and that is it often seems too easy and a lot of the challenge has gone, I fear the new A93 will only exacerbate the situation. The A100 was also my first Sony camera, seems a lifetime ago!!

Ah yes, there are many of my older DSLR shots that I know am considering whether they’re worth keeping. The photographs produced by modern E-mount cameras are often a step above in quality.

The fortunate effect is for those of us who can’t spend a day shooting, that I’m now more likely to come back with some keepers on a short trip, whereas before I might not get anything 🙂

But yeah, one has to be a lot stricter in the culling of shots now…

Another excellent shot @Brandy

I like the splayed wing feathers and pose, and of course, the meal in the beak.

I guess this is a rare case? What is a bee-eater doing in the water? Very interesting photo!

They dive in the water to wash themselves.
I've seen it many times but was only recently able to catch it
