I took my A7ii and some adapted lenses along to the local air show today (to give my arms a rest from the DSLR & sigma 150-500).
Still downloading images ready for processing but here's a taster for you:

View attachment 104265

Shot with a Paragon 500mm /8 mirror lens. The only processing being boost of contrast, cloning out the dust rings & resizing. So the vignetting is very obvious!
Let's see, Decent pic or P51 Musti, Brit Spit, P47 'bolt, and a ME109, no old Zero? All class.

This hummer is always in our backyard. He's very territorial regarding our Lavendar plant. Today he was sitting up very high so was hard to spot while he was keeping an eye on his rival. It is amazing how fast they can fly when they are keeping rivals at bay when it comes to food such as the Lavendar plant supplies.

Not easily spotted up amongst the wires and branches.

Keeping a sharp eye on his rival.

About to swoop in and scare the competition away.

All shots handheld, A7iii w/ Zoom-Nikkor 80-200 f4.
AoA, Good eye!

Thanks
But I'm afraid we didn't get the chance to see a zero.
I don't think many of them flew in the European theatre.
The ME109 here was actually a Spanish plane built post war to the plans of the ME109 but fitted with a Rolls-Royce Merlin engine, at least having the wrong sound doesn't spoil stills :biggrin:

Foggy morning walk to work with a new-to-me Tokina 20-35mm f3.5-4.5 (F mount) parked on the A7Rii. Swapped out my Nikon 24mm f2.8D for this little tank of a thing - the 24 was doing mostly landscape duty and nearly never wide open, this gives me wider angles (especially when shared on my D300). First test, I think it will do nicely for my purposes!

Just good luck. No pets or kids, just bugs and this one is a good bug (Yellow Scissortail, few Monarchs this season, sadly). Just like the pic.

New lens day, £5 for a Helios 44 on a very non-functioning Zenit body:

ILCE-7S    ----    0mm    f/1.0    1/100s    ISO 1000

(^ taken with Yashica ML 50/1.4). The Helios lens seems in decent nick:

ILCE-7S    ----    0mm    f/1.0    1/1000s    ISO 100
