A Mathematician's Way* of Converting Miles to Kilometers

• 1 mi ≈ 1.609 km

• The ratio of consecutive Fibonacci numbers Fₙ₊₁/Fₙ tends to the golden ratio φ ≈ 1.618 as n increases

So Fₙ mi ≈ Fₙ₊₁ km

*This is how I do it

Had some time to go to the nearby to the wildlife reserve and shoot some birbs yesterday!
of mom and her young'uns - grooming, looking for food and prepping for sleep.
Surprisingly decent shots for my first proper outing with the 800 mm manual focus.

Finally have a nice setup going for the 800mm lens!
· Had to drill and fit an end-stop screw to the T2-F-mount adapter
· Got a lens-hood (105mm ⌀ !)
· Also a circular polarized filter to try out
· A lens mount for the tripod (had to file it down to accommodate the large diameter)
Now I can balance the setup in its center of gravity to reduce vibration and eliminate droop. The hood should improve quality a lot according to people.
Time for some tests and ! 😎

This post goes out to @nm!
Won exit row lottery for the MUC-HEL leg. 😊
And now for some nice Lufthansa 🍺!

My new desk ornament for the office has arrived.
This will solve all the problems, ONCE AND FOR ALL! 😆

It's a really nice spot in general though (Espoo, Nuottaranta – see also EXIF coordinates).

So yeah, took the new 800 mm lens out to get some content. Really hard to get it sharp. Doesn't help that the adapter ring is missing an end-stop and the lens keeps falling out. 😑
Look at the little ones though! 😍

HAVE YOU HEARD LIISA? @tbr IS NOW TRYING TO TAKE PHOTOS JUST LIKE @sophia . BUT DAMN DOES HE STILL SUCK AT IT!

Heh, Helsinki metro 🚇 info Screens run Firefox or some derivative.
At least judging by the crash reporter on this screen.
