not the prettiest things

Maybe a noob question but is a bigma a specific lens or just any of the long sigma telephotos?

I think I'm right in saying the Bigma is the Sigma 50-500, the Bigmos is the 150-500.

Yeah bigma is the 50-500.

150-500 was incorectly named the bigmaos as people thought it was an OS replacement to the bigma.

Then we now have the 50-500 OS which is the real bigmaos.

Sigmonster = 300-800
Sigmalux = 50f1.4

for first time in a few years G S Woody's are nesting in the orchard at work, put the hide net up at the back to get some pics of them feeding the youngsters soon.

male & female on the feeders this morn, hoped to get both on together but one always flew off as the other landed.

I like the peanut log - good idea! Must be great to have GSW's in your garden too!

Have had a new visitor to my garden, the local Greenfinches have brought their youngster over and he's been spending quite a bit of time in my garden this weekend. I took this through my kitchen window as he sat on the feeding station nearby:

Thanks D.Y.

Nice Pipit pics John. I like that second one, the upright framing works really well and the inclusion of the fly is a good touch I thought.

really pleased to see this when I got to work this morning

catcher 3

first time one of the boxes I put up for them has been used in a few years, hopefully there are at least 3 pairs this year.

quick walk around the lake & loads of Damselflies around but didn't have tripod so going back later, was a lovely Chaser Dragonfly buzzing about but wouldn't sit still, did get this Large Red.
