Those W batteries are the worst... ZED battery for life! Once you try it you won't go back. Well, obviously..
I'm not going to complain too much. They are what they are and technology has moved on. I've probably had worse battery life in a camera battery but it was so long ago I've forgotten it or which one it was. I don't shoot a whole lot any ways so it really isn't fair for me to complain.
I think the resting discharge of the ii is a lot higher than the iii. Could be wrong on that too.

I think it's the battery. The Z is also a lot bigger compared to W series. I don't know on 7R but on 7iii it seems like it lasts forever.

I did not think the W batteries were that terrible, but I did always have 2+ in case I ran out. Most of the time, one was sufficient, but I am a low-volume shooter.

The Z is incredibly long-lasting though. I have yet to run it all the way out (on A7Riii), so I have not even picked up a spare.

As I was about to shoot, this bug came flying in to check out the pollen on the flower!

Mr Fox ..... this morning around 8.30. He's been seen around, I guess this is his territory but normally he wouldn't be around at this time. The woods are quite close to us so I guess he must be starving hungry to be scrapping around in the daylight with lots of people about. It's tempting to leave him food but probably not a good idea. Little B barks most nights when he hears him in the garden.

He does not look like he's overly well fed, that's for sure.

Is that some sort of fabric?
No, actually it is a round basket-style paper filter for use in my coffee machine! I had gotten one out last night in preparation for making coffee this morning, set it out on the counter, and this morning when I came out to the kitchen I was struck by the way the sunlight was streaming in the window and hitting the filter, with the folds making interesting shadows. I immediately grabbed the camera and stuck the macro lens on, and as I got closer and closer with the macro lens I noticed the interesting texture, too, of the filter. A bit of darkening of the shadows and the blacks in post-processing resulted in this image.... :)

Spent the morning making up a load of lumber for my train.
