I am over the moon. I got this lens yesterday. I have been coveting it for a long long time. Last week I mustered the courage to ask my wife, Erica if I could get it and she said "Sure you can!".
Last night I checked it out and figured that I need to AFMA it...
Moving on - last week we discovered a number of caterpillars on one of our plants on the terrace. We (the humans) decided to "save" them! So we got the pot in the house. Well, all went well for a day but later we discovered that caterpillars were missing and there were splatters on the wall. Erica discovered a gecko slinking around the wall near the pot. So the pot promptly went back to the terrace and we (the humans - but then you knew that already...) decided to "save" four caterpillars and left the rest on the shrub in the pot. So the chosen few went into a shoe box and Erica made holes on the top so they could breathe. Leaves were added in the box for good measure. Some hours later, I see a caterpillar on the floor! So we open the box. Guess what! None inside! So we search. Well, the box was put on an old hat stand and we discover that three of them have gone to different places on the stand. Here is one of them sitting on the edge of a mirror on the hat stand.
Well, this one (photo attached below) seemed anchored. The other two seemed to be a bit more mobile so we transferred them over to the shrub in the pot.
