Supersoon

November 2016

This year, the full moons of October, November and December all take place when the moon is at its closest point of approach in its orbit around Earth — a so-called supermoon.

This full moon will be not only the closest and brightest supermoon of 2016 but also the largest since 1948.

Olympus 300mm f4 PRO what a wonderful lens from Olympus. (35mm equivalent: 600mm) is a precision instrument that delivers pristine optical rendering across the entire image ‑ all packed in a metal body that is one of the most compact in its class. The fast aperture of 1:4.0 gives you full control of your creativity and outstanding image quality. It features the world’s first* 5‑Axis Sync IS mechanism, which works with your OM‑D E‑M1 or E‑M5 Mark II to realise an enhanced compensation by 6 EV steps. Tipping the scales at 1270g, this M.ZUIKO lens is up to 75 percent lighter than competitor’s SLR lenses ‑ while continuing to provide equivalent focal lengths for your nature, sports, telemacro or stage photography. In all weather conditions, extreme mobility is yours for any photo assignment! This must‑have lens with the high‑speed focusing ability of less than 300ms using the E‑M5 Mark II is beyond comparison.

The brown fur seal (Arctocephalus pusillus), also known as the Cape fur seal, South African fur seal.
The brown fur seal is the largest and most robust fur seal. It has a large and broad head with a pointed snout that may be flat or upturned slightly.They have external ear flaps (pinnae) and their whiskers (vibrissae) are long, and may extend backward past the pinnae, especially in adult males.
The African fur seal’s diet is made of up to 70% fish, 20% squid and 2% crab.[6] Also eaten are other crustaceans, cephalopods and sometimes birds.In rare instances they have even been documented attacking and eating sharks. A recent incident occurred off Cape Point, South Africa, where a large male was observed attacking and killing five blue sharks between 1 and 1.4 metres long. Observers concluded that the seal likely killed the sharks to eat the fish rich contents of their stomachs as well as their livers as a source of energy. The brown fur seal’s main predator is the great white shark, although they are also preyed upon by various other animals, as well, such as orcas.
Brown fur seals often gather into colonies on rookeries in numbers ranging from 500–1500.
