AF at F8 on MKIII ok for images sitting still, not so much if they are on move, oh well, set my expectations a bit too high.  Manual focus still better overall....  Allen's female, So Cal...

Took a small hike today and came across a 4-5 Gopher Snake.  It was surprisingly casual despite there being quite a few people checking it out.  I kept getting in front of it to take a pic and it kept moving toward me.  Considering I needed at least 1.5 meters for focus it was a bit frustrating.  You would think it would have at least paused for a bit...!  Stepped back a bit further and kept shooting.

Corporate Community as Spam.

Yesterday one of my images was re-shared to a Nature Photgraphy Community.  The community was created by a commercial entity page.  I was then invited to join.  I believe that if communities like this get past the point of failure, the corporate creator will have managed to acquire content free support for a perpetual advertisement.

I voiced my distaste in a post. The post was removed and I was summarily banned from re-joining.

Prior to my post, I also posted on the re-share of my image the same words.  It will be the price they have to pay to keep my image there.

I am concerned that this is going to become common practice here.  That our content will be used to build communities for the purpose of free advertisement.  Hopefully it does not, because it would certainly be the end of my account here.

Here is the link for those interested.
