Ibis’s in the park, Macro Style   1 comment

I went to Roma Street last Friday on the way to work, for a look around and to check out Macro possiblities.

So set up for Macro, with 60mm Macro lens, of course I would get a birding opportunity.

I captured this Ibis sitting on top of this post, looking very regal.


And then he flew off.

As previously mentioned, these were taken with 60mm Macro lens on a 7D.

Cheers Dave

Pelicans on the Pond   Leave a comment

I went back on Friday, to where I photographed (last  Saturday) the duck photos I put up yesterday, and was Please to see two Pelicans on the pond.

They were quite mobile paddling from one side to the other and back again.


Had to include this shot, the photos of birds I take going away from me, exceeds greatly the number I get good front shots of .

Taken with 7D and 70-200mm lens.

Cheers Dave



450D/50 Photo 14 “Happy Cat”   Leave a comment

What could make a Cat happier, then lying on the back of a lounge, catching the afternoon sun, and a cool breeze.

Very content cat.

I changed to Black and White, as I thought it captured the “lazy” mood better.

Canon 450D, 50mm F1.8, Shot in Raw, processed in CS5, F1.8 1/2000, shot in AV mode.

450D/50 Photo 12 “Ibis and White Face Heron”   Leave a comment

Posting my first bird photos using this lens, and very happy with the results considering the 50mm focal length, most of my Bird photos are usually taken at around 200mm, or more often longer, so to get there two photos with this lens is a “win”

The first is a Ibis, staring into the water.

Canon 450D, 50mm,shot in Raw, Processed in CS5, F5.6, 1/400, shot in P ( that stand for professional, right??…………… actually was in “P”, as in stealth mode, and new I might not have time ot adjust settings, when I was in a position to take the photo, so left it to the camera to think for me.


The second is a White Face heron, took a bit of stealth to get close to this one, but reasonably happy with it.

Canon 450D, 50mm,shot in Raw, Processed in CS5, F3.5, 1/160, shot in P also, for the same reason as photo above.

Hoping to get out, and maybe get some more landscape photos for something different soon.

Cheers Dave
