What did you see in your binoculars today? (1 Viewer)

This morning a short-toed Eagle passed over my house and I was able to observe it with my Aurora. It is the twelfth species of raptor I have seen from my garden
I used my UV 7x42 in the garden this morning. Apart from a few buzzards in the sky there were some very interesting insects in my garden. I don't usually watch insects through binoculars, so it was the first time for me to think that the close focus of the UV could be a bit better. Watching bumblebees and dragonflies through the UV was very nice, though. I didn't have my telephoto at hand, so I snapped a photo with my 45 yo Leica Summicron. Here is a female broad-bodied chaser.PK003921s_024037.jpg
It's harvest time as the farmers cut and turn the grass ready to be chopped for sillage.

This attracts the Buzzards and Red Kites searching for any lost and confused mice and other little creatures. This gorgeous Buzzard was resting in between snacks.

Watched through the superb Meopta B1 8x56's and shot with a Lumix S5 II and a Sigma 150-600mm lens.

This big proud soon to be mother of four let me watch her from close distance through my Nikon 6x15 for a minute and then i felt like an intruder so I let her be.

First i became very angry about the plastic around her but then…shame on me…i start thinking about how big of a omelette you could make of one of this eggs🙊

Took my new-to-me 1957 CZJ Silvarem for a spin. Single-layer T-coatings made in GDR (y). Ca. 80% transmission. Very nice tack sharp image and a large sweet spot. Smoooth CF, although maybe a tad light. CW to infinity. All it needs is a rainguard.

It showed me some skittish deer which took off even though no way could they have seen the dog behind the wheat field.
