he looks lost without real trees
All too easy to project our emotions on an animal. He/she is hugging, embracing the tree like its lost mothers, seeking a little security in an alien world.

Koalas live around the bush here, it is magic to see them in the trees, harder to spot than many would think

Visited this part of the zoo several times over the course of the day, and these fellows would not turn to face the camera. The softness is probably my fault for failing to set up the tripod OR forgetting to turn off the shake if I did.
If you want them to look at you, go at night. Nocturnal.

Thanks, Norm!

There are so many threads these are relevant too, the 18-135, the high ISO discussions, you've just done what a pile of people claimed can't be done, both in therms of the lens used and the ISO used. Those are some stereotype busting pictures. There's also a thread for stage shots.

If you are into copy pasting your post and cross posting.

Thanks, I'll do that. Btw, I tried three times to post how much I liked your bird shots, particularly the jay, but somehow it always wound up appended to my post. The chops and patience you and the other birders show are instructional and inspirational.

This was a shot taken last october with the 15mm limited. I really like the mood.
Do you think it is to dark?

I haven't used my K3 much for high ISO shots but when I do, even after a year, I still can't help but think how poorly my K200D would have done in comparison. Not just in terms of noise, but much more importantly in terms of AF accuracy.

These are from last night's "reyes" procession in Segovia. All shot with the DA 70mm wide open.

But, the zoo isn't open even to sundown, much less after.

I would greatly appreciate it, LeDave, if you would not post any more of these macro shots with that lens. She Who Must Be Obeyed doesn't think I "need" that 100 WR macro because I have an M 100/4 macro. But I do, I do, honey, I really, really, really NEED that lens!

Great shots.

Thanks mate, not much of a difference between having a f2.8 or a f4 I think. I mean I'll always shoot at f8 or above when using this lens on it's intended purpose, macro. The biggest advantage of the 100 WR Macro is it has some sort of water resistance, good for if you want to shoot in the rain. But it is under 400 now I think? Which is the cheapest I've ever seen it; Tell your wife that.

EDIT: Oh, I think I know what you're thinking! The sleek looks of the 100 WR Macro is impeccable. You want it because of not just macro photography, but rather it is truly one of the most beautiful looking lens
