Bees and Pink Flowers   1 comment

Another visit to Roma Street Parklands in Brisbane friday morning.

I was a little dissapointed, no Water Dragons, No Water Lilies.

But there is always something to capture this time Bees amongst the Pink Flowers

Not a Bee, but you can see potential Death for a Bee, lurking below the flower here.

 

Cheers Dave

Water Dragon   Leave a comment

Another photo from my recent trip to Roma Street Parklands

One of my favourite animals to photograph, a Water Dragon

I never tire of just watching these guys they are so regal and proud, and also seem to enjoy posing for the camera.

Taken with 7D and 70-200mm lens

More Water Lilies   1 comment

I had the opportunity to stop at the Mount Cootha Botanical Gardens, on the way to visit a friend on Sunday.

I was intending to do some more macro work, but as time was against me, only really managed to look around the pond.

I am starting to like photographing Water Lilies as much as Water Dragons, and had both to shoot here.

A couple of the Water Lilies photos

Taken with 7D and 70-200mm Lens.

Water Dragon in the Water .   Leave a comment

On a recent trip to Roma Street Parklands (as anybody who has followed my blog will know I go there often).

I was walking back across one one the walkways along trhe side of the lagoon, and heard a splash.

Looking down in the water, I saw this little guy looking up.

Canon 7D and 100mm macro lens.

How to Train your Dragon – Stage Show   Leave a comment

Last Saturday, I managed to get to see the Stage Show, of ” How to Train your Dragon”, you were only allowed to take in your “Point and Shoot” cameras, no DSLR , so did what I could with my Panasonic Lumix FT2, and this is the result.

Highly Reconmended.

Chained Dragon   Leave a comment

A photo from the weekend, I captured while wandering around Fort Lytton, near the Port of Brisbane.

There were dragon flys, flying around everywhere, but I struggled to capture them on pretty flowers or a plant of any description for the natural look I was hoping for, but they would stay  still on this piece of chain.

Both shot with 7D, with 70-300mm L series lens.

Cheers Dave
