Got me a new lens today - The Sigma 150-600mm DG OS HSM Contemporary Lens. Here are a few samples from the lens

A Golden-spotted Tiger Beetle (Cosmodela aurulenta) at Windsor Nature Park, 21 Feb 2022. It was resting on a leaf, instead of quickly running around, giving me a chance to get up close and personal with it. The pattern on its carapace is quite lovely.

Tiger beetles are quick runners, so finding one that isn't moving is a rare opportunity.

Guten Morgen. Na, kann man wach sein? Ich hoffe ihr habt den Sturm überstanden.

Guten Morgen mit dem Erlenzeisig. Da steht man mit der Kamera vorm Baum und entdeckt sie kaum und am Bildschirm betrachtet denkt man dann, so schöne bunte Vögel müsste man mal in echt sehen. Seltsam.

And here is an experimental test; posting the result video output of the new Krita Recorder feature of 5.0:

This photo took about 15-17 hours total to complete. The setup and shooting wasn't too bad, but that alone took about 2-4 hours, but the Photoshopping is what took the most time, there's only around 5 photos combined, but masking out the splash was super annoying.
