This short article shares a selection of 10 consecutive images that feature water reflections of a swan charge as the bird raced in my direction. All of the photographs were captured handheld using a combination of the E-M1X’s Bird Detection AI Subject Tracking and Pro Capture L technologies.
This article shares a selection of handheld photographs of American Goldfinches that were captured in my backyard earlier this summer.

Earlier this week, during a visit to the Royal Botanical Gardens, I was very fortunate to be able to capture a selection of photographs of a Golden Crowned Kinglet.

There’s a well-used saying that “Old Habits Die Hard” which is applicable to various areas of our lives including photography. Humans tend to be creatures of habit.

The first step in changing old photographic habits is to become aware of them.

This article shares some of my favourite Pro Capture images that were created using an E-M1X, M.Zuiko telephoto lenses, and M.Zuiko teleconverters. All were captured handheld. Without question the more that I have used Pro Capture, the more indispensable it has become to my bird and insect photography.
This article features a selection of photographs of wasps in-flight at 1600 mm efov, captured handheld at Grimsby Wetlands. As regular readers know, from time to time I like to give myself a specific challenge… and push my camera gear… just to see what will happen.

A few days ago I spent some time sitting in a lounge chair on my back deck photographing Monarch butterflies. It was one of the most productive butterfly photography sessions that I’ve had in quite some time.
