Thanks, Tuco. The pano dimensions are close to a regular 55mm frame but not quite as wide.

I'm not an entomologist, just an interested naturalist. There are many bees that nest in the ground, including bumble bees.

Great shot of a Common Eastern Bumble Bee, Bombus impatiens. As they get older, they start to lose hair and they often get a bald spot on the thorax between the wings. This is the most common bumble bee across the eastern half of the USA.

The MacWin version of the firmware works fine on my Linux box. It has to unzip to a format usable to the camera so it should not matter which version you get.

The go-to for Rollei repairs in North America is Harry Fleenor in California:

He is expensive but then you have a Rollei. Totally worth the expense, IMO.

Yes, those are the Canadian Parliament Buildings in Ottawa, Ontario. The clothes and hairdos the two women are wearing in the picture overlooking the Ottawa River were popular in the 1960s. Audrey Hepburn first wore the beehive in 1960. The special occasion happening with all those people lined up is the Changing of the Guard ceremony:

Changing the Guard on Parliament Hill, Ottawa, Canada

That is all I can help with.

Great shots of a Snowberry Clearwing Moth, Mike. There are four "hummingbird" moths in North America and this one, Hemaris diffinis, is common across the eastern 2/3 of the USA. More info here:

Looks like the Blinded Sphinx Moth, Paonius excaecatus. Sphinx moths are told mainly from the topside of their hindwings which usually have a prominent eyespot with a central spot of a different color. The Blinded Sphinx does not have a second central spot thus the "Blinded" term. We can't see the hindwing in this photo since the forewings are covering them. Great photo!

Yes, the bird mobbing the hawk is a mockingbird. But I do not think the bird in the hawk's talons is a nestling mocker. It seems too brown and somewhat large.

Looks more like a female willow of some kind, Walt, with those catkins and their pistillate capsules. We have one called Barratt's Willow in the sub-alpine here that is similar.

Great shots! This Redtail was hatched last year - note the barred juvenile tail feather still not molted out. Not sure what bird prey the hawk has in its talons but it does not look to be a mocker. - Jack

"Hello, I would use CL 60 min. or CLCS (Cold Start) 70 min. CLCN is for microfilms like Adox CMS, Agfa Copex Rapid with high contrast..."

Indeed, total failure with Delta 100 and CLCN. Back to a stand process...

I have a roll of Delta 100 ready to go, Frederic. I am going to use your CLCN recipe and see what I end up with. I really like your result. Will post back. - Jack
