That seems to be one of the wishy/washy unknowns but all the vaccines will probably reduce how infectious you are and will probably reduce the period of time you are infectious.

Anyone with a belief has, within themselves, the absolute knowledge that their belief is true. Therefore they 'know' that any proof against their belief 'must be wrong or faked'.



Careful, there have been many cases of airborne transmission, covid transmission restaurant air conditioning -china - Google Search



Not all truck drivers are young. The biggest problem with truck drivers is their sheer mobility, we have had a few cases of truck drivers taking the virus to towns which had no cases and causing tens of thousands to have to be tested.

No, the take away from this video is wear a mask! Stay at least 6 feet away from anyone wearing a mask (other than those you live with) and keep completely away from anyone not wearing a mask. Spend as little time with others as possible.



This page seems about right except the bit about viral shedding which is not well written: UConn Health's Dr. David Banach Explains the COVID-19 Vaccine - UConn Today

Mikey says:

But that's not quite true. Apart from the fact that the vaccines are only 95% effective (and that's still really good), vaccines don't stop you from being infected. They prepare the immune system to fight the infection (SARS-CoV-2) so that so that you either do not develop the disease (Covid-19) or only develop a mild case.

So where the UConn article says :

“For instance, people who get the vaccine might still potentially shed virus, potentially at a lower level. The vaccine will prevent them from actually becoming ill, but vaccinated individuals might still be able to have virus in their nose and their respiratory system."

I believe it is referring to people who are infected before or after receiving the vaccine, certainly not as a result of receiving the vaccine.

From what I hear, if you have a mild (little or no symptoms) case you do not develop long term immunity and should still have the vaccine.

Somebody had a hard night!

She was just asleep and her head slowly drooped until it was completely upside down.

We must forgive her though, she lost her chick a few days ago.

Looks fine for bicycles, but for little birds I would have liked a few points above and below the main area. Maybe shift 4 of the green from either end.

bird photography lens recommendation for K-50

That's about the equivalent of the K50 with a DA*300 and a (good) 1.4/1.5 TC. The 55-300 PLM with a 1.4TC would be a close second if somebody can confirm that combination works on a K50 (it doesn't on earlier models but does on a KP).

Edit, I don't think the K50 will work with the 55-300 PLM with a 1.4TC.

If I've got it right, this should give you some idea what you can expect to see through a 300mm lens.

Well, this morning I set myself a challenge. To photograph all the Tawny Frogmouths I knew of or had heard of in Braeside Park. I failed :( There should have been 16 Adults (or more if I was lucky) but I could only find 11 and some of those I couldn't find I had seen within the last few days.

All crops except 1, K3 DA*300 no TC.

Me too!

25 metres is overkill, they should be comfortable at under half that provided you act more like an Echidna than a Wolf ;)

7 Tawnies this morning, 3 nests, with chicks visible in 2 nests. So it shouldn't be long before they're out, but then they will only hang around for a very short time.

K3, DA*300 + Tamron-F 1.4TC (at about 15 metres and cropped):
