    Nice set, Rags.

    I like 3,4,5 and 12 for the motion.

    Excellent shots of a wide variety.
    Am I right in thinking you used a mirror lens for many of these? If so I've got to improve my focusing!

    Yeah, Rags, it's good to see some of your " vintage " stuff. Excellent work all around. Like you, I've had to make concessions on doing some things that I once really savored. That's life.

    If God wanted me to touch my toes, he would have put them on my knees.

    Petro.. I don't even know what a mirror lens is......

    Tom as you know, we all go thru phases in life and I hope all will enjoy each of them... I'm trying to... :D

    That suggests I'm wrong then!
    Mirror lenses (the correct technical term is Catadioptic lenses) use 2 curved mirrors in addition to normal lenses to fit long focal lengths into a much smaller & lighter package.
    They are usually manual focus & with a fixed aperture (there are exceptions to both of these).

    One of the characteristics of their images is donut bokeh, and a couple of these shots (1st, 7th & perhaps 9th) seemed to have a subtle example of this in the background foliage.
