Kookaburras   1 comment

The afternoon, before I got the Kingfisher photo, I was over at my Mum’s at Bribie Island, and there was a few Kookaburras hanging around,the people across the road feed them.

They are from the same family of Birds as the Kingfishers.

 

 

Taken with Canon 7D and 70-200 lens, shot at around F4.

Kingfisher – captured at last   67 comments

I have been in a quest for a while to get a decent Photo of a Kingfisher, although not to the quality I would like, it is still a Photo of a Kingfisher, a fair crop from the actual photo, but flew away before I could get any closer.

Good thing is, that I now know where Mr Kingfisher hangs out, and will revisit the location again in a quest for more and better photos.

A common bird on an exotic flower   1 comment

A couple of weeks ago, I went out to Mount Cootha Botanical Gardens, and captured this Noisy Miner (Manorina melanocephala) , quite a common bird, but I think it contrast well with this tropical flower.

What do you think?

Hover Fly – Family Syrphidae   4 comments

Another series of Photos from my walk through Roma Street Parklands in Brisbane during the week.

This time a Hover Fly.

Love these little guys, and they are well behaved in “hovering”, giving you a chance to find focus while they are in flight.

Blue Rutilia Fly – Rutilia (Neorutilia) simplex   3 comments

I had the opportunity earlier in the week to get to the Parklands before work.

I saw this Blue Fly, who stayed still long enough for me to get a couple of decent photos.

I have a few other “bug photo” I got on the day, which hopefully will post soon.

Cheers Dave

 

Koala’s   Leave a comment

On the weekend call in at the Daisy Hill Koala Centre and took a couple of the photos.

They look quite cute and cuddly, and sleep approx 20hours a day, what a life.

They are marsupials not bears.

 

This one was giving a ” Evil” look to some ‘Noisey”  children preventing him from getting his sleep.
