I'm gonna have to try and get some slow mo video of them, the robotic movements are pretty hypnotic.
I saw the moment it caught it but didn't get the camera up in time. They seem to be about the only resident bugs of interest in my garden but I've made some rosemary and thyme and bought some parsley and chives so hopefully next year will be better. I might make a bug hotel too

Did you notice the laowa probe lens on springwatch? I didn't realise it was that big but I can really see a use for it, being able to stick it through the foliage rather than doing camera yoga and getting your head covered in webs/sap/other bugs.

That first one's a belter

@ken - even the most common insects feel like you've never seen them before.
It's like an alien world.

This shot was today in the garden.
I love the hooks on the feet.

The macro world is an amazing place when you get that small.

Bloody hell, I didn't realise it was right there. I'll be a bit further along commercial street, opposite the coffee shop(Starbucks I think) at the end of the shops.
Might try and book my em5 in for a sensor clean

Spitafields market to WEX will take less than five minutes walking.
Leave the market on Commercial Street, turn right and go to Whitechapel High Street, turn left then first right and WEX is two hundred yards on your left

Used them a few times and been very happy with them, I did hope they'd keep the little calumet store off Oxford Street as the new one is a bit of a trek. One tube ride to Tottenham Court and I've got park, cameraworld, jess ops and a few small dodgy looking shops

Ive always had great service in park, they've even sent me to the London lighting store when they could have sold me something similar at a higher price. Little things can make a huge difference.
Shame I'm not working over there any time soon, and I'm not riding the tube for a memory card!

I may swap my p35-100 for the olympus 40-150 since some of the features are only available with olympus lenses, bit out of order that

Saying that, I'll be over spittle fields soon, how far is wex from there?

Keep an eye on WEX website for Current Wex promo codes.
They don't keep them up for long but often have half decent ones.
I am only two tubes from their East London shop, I could spend an hour at a time in there just looking around.
Usually end up buying from the used lens Section as they do some good prices on used lenses plus you get a guarantee.

Yeah I've had it a little while but only really used it with the peregrines which have been frustratingly out of range.

Just been following a jumper around my lemon tree, bit of a revelation using caf for macro, was a shame I got it taking off and landing but with the modes I'm locked out of I would have got a few frames in mid air.

I might just get the card I want at wex, 40 quid difference isn't too bad for the peace of mind

I use CF in both my 1D4 & 5D3.

All my cards I bought from reputable stores for exactly that reason so I can't really help you there.

That's a good camera you have, so you need decent memory cards.

It's a long link but helps in identifying genuine SD cards.
There are a lot of useless copies out there.

I went with the olympus em1ii, didn't fancy dropping another 500 for USB charging, that's about the only difference to me between the ii and iii.
Just need to get used to button placement, my thumbs are searching for buttons that aren't there at the moment

Is it safe buying cards on amazon these days? They're a lot cheaper but I've heard there are lots of fakes.

F****** hives

Was a bit worried this morning but not a squeek today thankfully.
Gave me a chance to play with the new camera between showers, will take some time to get used to it but the "pro capture" mode could be brilliant for macro, available light only but one of those folding diffuser/reflector jobbies should help.
Some extra megapickles and cleaner high iso won't hurt either.
Focusing wasn't great with a sigma 1.8 zoom so I don't think I'll get a 150-600.
Didn't realise Id need a mega fast card to use some functions(60fps raw excluded)

Even at a lowly 18fps I ended up with over a thousand crap photos to delete
