Rainbow Bee Eaters   Leave a comment

I recently had the opportunity to go to Darwin Northern Territory for a weekend.

I was happy to see an abundance of bird life, including there very pretty Rainbow Bee Eaters. 

Unfortunately they were a distance away, so these images are large crops from the actual photos.

Taken with 7D and mostly 70-200lens.

Cheers Dave

Sunset on the Farm – Pine Mountain Queensland.   1 comment

More of  my farm photos from last week, this time a sunset.

Was working on the Farm into the afternoon, saw the clouds building and hope they stay until the sun went down, which luckily they did, so grabbed the camera and took some quick shots.

Australasian Gannets   Leave a comment

Another Bird from the “Inskip Experiance”

Ok, had to do some research to identify this bird, appears to be a Australasian Gannet, it would have been close to 50metres from where I was, so these images are pretty decents crops from the actual photos taken.

I am still pretty excited, as do not recall ever seeing one before, and was quite chuffed with the capture.

Now to research them even more and get some better images, I love the colour and look of these birds, and there spectacular fishing style.

All taken with 7D and 70-200mm Lens.

Cheers Dave
