Olympus is not in bankruptcy proceedings but they fouled up immensely. Fortunately they cleaned up few bad apples from the board including the chairman. Their stock is rebounding but still has a long way to get back to thirties level.

Sales of m43 in Japan for the first time exceeded Nikon and Canon DSLR sales. Olympus was one of the founders of m43 which is dominant in mirrorless sales. Sony had early entry as well and has great mirrorless product line. I would not be too negative about Olympus, their commercial optics and photographic product portfolio is excellent. I am not surprised that shareholders are upset; I would be too but hope that Olympus will regain its business strength; they do have engineering strength.

I would however be concern about Canon lateness to mirrorless field and underwhelming Nikon V/J - 1 entry.

Beautiful shot Brian. Macro photography is hard technically, but even harder artistically. You nailed this one.

I bought a macro lens a few weeks ago, and last weekend we took a trip to our favourite part of Washington State to try it out. More photos here: Fun with Macro - a set on Flickr

Fiddlehead

Here is more evidence of the arrival of spring: a fiddlehead for a maidenhair fern in our garden.

Nice detail shot of Spring in your area of the world Brian. Down here in Texas, Spring sometimes is a double edged sword. We get the welcomed rain and nice camping temperatures, but also the uncertain skies and sometimes the bad stuff that come with it.

Here is my shot of this:

Nice shots guys.

I'll try to attach a couple of images from Easter - snow and wind! The bridge is a fascinating bit of local history - a straight railroad across the river with a road underneath. The road has severe bends each end so vehicles could make it down the bank and onto the bridge. The other shor is in a local park.

I'm still hoping for spring!

Your sky photo inspired me to post one of mine, taken from my Oklahoma back yard.
