This Kestrel was somewhat bedraggled and was not interested in flying today. After 15 minutes of bribery, inc a mouse, he eventually decided to sit where I could get a decent couple of pictures. :broon:

Some great photos. Makes me wish I had a DSLR :( .

My old film SLR (Minolta Dynax 6000i) sits gathering dust after the mirror came adrift about 10 years ago. Probably not worth getting fixed.

Might see about a Sony DSLR as at least my lenses will fit.

That's one of the main reasons why I went down the sony route, so I could reuse some of my Minolta lenses.

The sony a58 is a good camera and prices are falling still. It's currently on for £270 at currys - heck of a lot of camera for that money.

A recent pic - kinda like this one - cropped.

Taken on a Sony A77ii with f2.8 16-50mm lens. F9, 1/160 sec, ISO 100 @50mm.

Yeovilton air day Mike. After paying an arm and a leg to get in, after an hour we left to spend the rest of the afternoon in the car park where we were able to get better shots of the displays.

Sorry Mike , only just saw your reply. I just googled the Yeovilton air show. It looks like a good day out!

Here are a few snaps taken at Duxford over the last couple of weeks (I live not far away and get free entry)




























Did anyone spot the quite deliberate 'continuity error'?
