Little Miracles

ATTENBOROUGH : ‘Climate Change Stops Plants Growing’ | Principia Scientific International

Last night I was photographing some of God’s large miracles, like Saturn and Jupiter.  Today I am looking at some equally impressive little miracles.

    “The force that through the green fuse drives the flower” A little more difficult to extinguish than alarmists woild have you think.

    Originally, David Attenborough and botanist Professor David Bellamy dismissed the climate scam. Bellamy refused to lie and the BBC immediately dropped him.

    Attenborough did an about-face and became an advocate of man-made Global Warming, after all, he wanted to go on making his animals series and travelling the world. He especially wanted to do a series in the Arctic which only the tax-payer funded BBC could afford to do. This he did but… was a 7 part series with the 7th part a climate rant. When the series was sold abroad, including to the USA, that final part was missing.

    About the Brexit vote, Attenborough said “People are not wise, they should never have been given a vote.” What an undemocratic snob!

    Finally, he is firmly on the same side as Erlich – too many people and something must be done but doesn’t say what that should be (while enjoying his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren). So the reduction in population doesn’t apply to his family, then!

    It’s a pity as he was a very personable young man in the 50s and 60s.

    …I love these shots

    Based on Attenborough’s beliefs, the Earth must surely be going through a de-greening process as we speak. Ever decreasing crop production. Dogs and cats, living together …

    I am glad you have (and take) the time to do this. You are an inspiration to others.

    I don’t always comment on your photos, but I look at each and every one. You don’t know why I do that, and that’s inconsequential. What you do with that tiny sensor and that big, fixed, zoom lens is what IS consequential. It is amazing. Images are not crystal clear as from a $6k DSLR and a $20,000 lens. But it’s just a P900!

    What you do with that little bridgecam is BRILLIANT!

    Thank you Tony! Keep ’em coming!

      Thanks! Hoping to upgrade to a P1000 later this year.

        The rumored 3,000 mm equivalent (125x) lens is awesome. I would expect similar IQ to the P900, because of constraints on the sensor size (will likely be cut up into more, smaller pixels on the same or similar size footprint).

        For the rumored price, Nikon should include RAW capability, which would help to resolve more detail in Lightroom (or similar) post-processing. (Nikon can include RAW if they want – my aging Fujifilm HS50 EXR has RAW capture.) It’s the only way to resolve more detail from these small bridge cam sensors.

        The only other way to resolve more detail, reduce noise and provide better dynamic range would be to make the camera larger to fit a larger sensor (but that would defeat the convenience of a lightweight and fairly compact bridge cam).

        So, I hope they include RAW shooting in the P1000.

    Great Spring-time shots Tony! Pictures of the miraculous blessings of God’s world.

    They were a long time coming this year. They’ve finally arrived in Iowa as well.

    Gorgeous shots!

    Love the flower pictures thanks.

    The picture of flax plant at the bottom is especially good. These flower stems are long and willowy and wave around in the slightest breeze; very hard to photograph well.

    And all this beauty is supposed to be due to random, accidental evolution… Right.,

    Lady Bugs are so cool. They are innocuous and one of the few bugs that get up close but don’t bite :-) Grandkids love them.
