A walk at Attenborough by the River Trent.

Yes, some of the Sony ones don't have the carl zeiss lens , or they didn't. I've always liked Sony videos,  and the marine housings are good, so we went with that. OH has a big Canon SLR and ridiculously expensive lenses, but its just too much hassle to carry around all the time.  I just bang everything on automatic, point and press. It has a macro button for close ups, and telephoto/wide angle, and with a whale shark, you need the wide angle!! Its pretty old now, bought in 2008 I think. I would buy another like it though, I think the megapixels have gone up a lot since.

It's a compact Sony cybershot.12megapixels. We bought it with a marine housing for chasing whalesharks, about 5 years ago. It's a good size for shoving in a pocket or handbag..

Are you in Minnesota? Buddyboy?

It's just that most of the forum are in UK, and the growing conditions, diseases, and remedies are somewhat different.

In a year it would be about 3feet.

Subsequent years,assuming hard pruning in spring, about 6to9 feet.

Without pruning about 15 ft after 4 years.
