Macro – spiders and flys on the verandah   1 comment

Early last Sunday morning, I went for a walk in the garden and surrounding yard and was not finding much at all to photograph – so walking back to come inside along the verandah, on the post at the top of the stairs I see a little spider and while I am photographing him – a fly lands as well.

First up two photos of Jumping Spiders with a little flying any as prey.

Macro at Lake Maroon   1 comment

Last weekend, I spent Friday/Saturday night – with a great bunch (19 in total) of fellow photographers, sharing a house at Lake Maroon in Queensland.

We did a variety of different photography topics from sunrises ( too much cloud for sunsets), star trails, Fire Twirling, Birding, Macro etc.

With the first post of hopefully a series ( if I am not to lazy/busy) to cover the two days of constant photograph fun, I will start with the Macro shots I got on the Saturday afternoon.

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

Hover Flys in the Garden ( Roma Street Gardens)   Leave a comment

A series of Hover Fly shots from my recent visit to Roma Street Parklands.

It took a bit of time and stalking to capture these with the shorter 60mm focal length, then the 100mm I am used to.

All taken with 7D and 60mm canon Macro lens.

Cheers Dave

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.

Another one from my recent visit to Roma Street Parklands.

This time a Hover Fly, before I knew what they were, thought they were some form of native bee.

I was lucky enough to spend some more time in the Roma Street Parklands last week.

I love shooting Macro, and was very happy with this fly photo, I managed to capture.
