Very nice catch Akira. An older bulbul enjoying Umemi .. ? ;-)

Thank you, Lars.  The bulbul seemed to be too busy in sucking the honey to appreciate the blossom part.   ::)

It was handheld, the 70-200 is not that heavy  ;)
Nice Combo, Bent.  The AF-S 80-200/2.8 works also great on the Z6

Feb. 14.  A bulbul sucking honey from the plum blossoms.

Sigma fp with Ai Nikkor 200/4.0.  The perfectly silent electronic shutter enabled me to make multiple shots without being noticed.  The image was trimmed only horizontally from the frame shot in the landscape orientation.
Seems to work great, Akira.   Already lots of blossom in Tokyo?

I've used Ai 200/4.0 on m4/3. APS-C and full-frame cameras, and it has never disappointed me!  And there are fair amount of blossoms here in Tokyo.

Feb. 15.  A dusk scene.  Sigma fp and 45/2.8 kit lens.

Interesting picture John, and maybe a nice place to study.
But my first thought was  "how much do they spend heating all that empty space in winter?

Thanks Colin,

The building has an ingenious system of climate control, heating some parts, sun collectors and floor heating. Every room in the building can be heated seperately.  Rather technical story

I had a little friend with me in theatre, at a children's play. She was increasingly eager to see the show start ....

Lovely little friends.

   This may be useful in some theaters too. "Silence"  :)

Stormy wind.

Wait for the right moment or pumping up shutter time.
