Re: Wildlife photos

Thanks for the comments and no problem giving tips just need an idea on what you would like to photograph etc.I am using a Canon D400 digital with 85-300mm zoom and a standard kit lense. PM me with your camera types.
I am no expert but am learning slowly.
There is a lot happening here at the moment with my stepfather very ill in hospital and medication being stopped so The next few days may be very traumatic for our family so I will be here when I can.
My Birthday today also so Im heading out in the canoe in the rain with an umbrella.Should be interesting!!

This ones from this mornings paddle.As I went past he stayed perfectly still looking the other way until I spoke to him.This is from about 20 feet away.What I am finding is that animals and birds are a lot more comfortable with a human in a canoe on water than a human on land.I guess this is something others before me knew.

Great photo, Salty.  I am so jealous of you...esp. stuck here in OZ. 

Your stepfather is in my prayers, Salty, and so are you and your family.  A special one to St. Jude for him throughout the day.  God bless!

At first I thought these were Osprey but I believe they may be called Goshawks or something like that.The one on the right was busy eating his catch.Taken from the Canoe again and probably the weekeend before I get out again.

Re: Wildlife photos

Came across this fox on my canoe trip this morning.They are feral here which is a real shame for such a great little animal.

Re: Wildlife photos

This ones a Water Dragon but a special one cause hes newly hatched and adopted our pond and waterfall as his home.Here hes lying on a log I placed across the pond near the waterfall in the hope this would become a lizard crossing.He is about 8 inches long now but will grow to about 3 feet maximum.

Re: Wildlife photos

We have had high rainfall over the past few days and as the lake fills with freshwater schools of fish and prawns migrate to the entrance.The Pelicans are sweeping the lake in large groups herding as they go!!Took this yesterday when the rain stopped briefly.Back again today and I think the lake might open to the sea again.

Re: Wildlife photos

This one I took a few days back in a rare moment of sunny skies here lately.The north coast has had around three floods so far this year and constantly wet.A couple of Australian Black Swans and a common Great Egret at Lake Cathie.

Re: Wildlife photos

This one is probably one of my favourites and quite a dangerous pursuit to get the shot.I may have posted this one before a long way back but this is the Old Man Roo or leader of the Mob at the back of the lake.When he stands to jump he is about seven feet tall and the biggest I have ever seen. A magnificent animal that has very little contact with humans and saw me as a threat. He was quite cable of ripping me apart with those hand claws, and on another occasion I had to back away very slowly as he turned and followed me into the water.

Re: Wildlife photos

Love it.. especially the sky/clouds against the cliff and trees and the reflection on the water...

What nasty little critters are they like ly to be around there?

Re: Wildlife photos

That landscape is breathtaking! I can feel it . . . the coolness of the water, the stones under my bare feet. How do you do that?

Re: Wildlife photos

The good thing about this place is the isolation and lack of people around.It was towards midday and the winter sun being lower makes for great light and colour.A steady hand and a bit sharpening in an editing program.
Critters so far encountered at Diamond Head on land are Eastern Grey Kangaroo,Carpet Snake and Goanna.There is abundant bird life and the ocean would have many man eaters.
