Actually I find DIF (dragonfly in flight) a little more challenging.

More to come from the APO-Telyt Module System ...

All great images, but this one is remarkable for the subject matter--a raven attacking a bat! Was the raven trying to eat the bat?

it's a crow actually, and it really caught me by surprise to see on my walk to lunch. the crow was victorious and carried the bat off when he had killed it.

One from the 80 'lux...

thanks. almost all my "wildlife" pictures are taken during my walk to or from work so i have the 350mm with me pretty much all the time in a messenger bag so it doesn't look like i'm carrying a camera. i certainly do get some weird looks when i take it out though.

Great shots!

Just FYI the Corvus genus contains both ravens and crows. Technically ravens are crows. The American crow (corvus brachyrhynchos) is smaller than the Common raven (corvus corax) though, among other differences.

sebboh, your pictures are really astonishing, especially the crow with the bat.
Today was one of the best days in my (photographic) life. I took my R8 body and the motor (the Akku already had a problem) to a camera-fair here in Frankfurt/Main, where I live, discovered that prices for Leica-R camera bodies have plunged to incredible depths, and got an almost new Apo-Macro-Elmarit 100mm for my stuff and an additional 350. The seller was a professional, so I don't have reason to feel like I cheated somebody. As I had a Leitax-bajonet for my Elmarit 19mm, which I don't use that often, I transferred it to the 100mm and went out to take some shots. The IQ is incredible, and I will certainly take this lense with me on my six-month India-trip after I retire in July.

thanks, as far as nomenclature goes i didn't know the word crow was commonly used to refer to all corvids (i expect it varies a bit in different countries/regions). i do often hear people use them interchangeably as most don't know the difference. sadly in chicago i have only seen the american crow, ravens seem to stick to wilder places so i don't have any shots of them yet (to my eye ravens have a more photogenic quality).

i do have lots of shots of crows though,





madamasu - thanks and congratulations. that apo macro is definitely on my wish list.
