A random Butterfly

We were out the other week, scouting locations for a Portrait shoot, and this Butterfly flew across the path, stopped only for a minute, enabling me to quickly snap a photo, and it was gone. Not the best Butterfly photo, I have taken, and he looks a little battered, but I still like it aContinue reading “A random Butterfly”

Grasshopper – experimenting with Extension Tubes for Macro Photography

I have had a set of Kenko Extension Tubes for a long time, but have never really used them, but was filling in some time, and thought it would be a good time to test them out. This photo was taken with 70-200mm and 20mm extension tube on a 7D ( this is a veryContinue reading “Grasshopper – experimenting with Extension Tubes for Macro Photography”

Taken with 7D and a  100mm L macro lensContinue reading “Overlooked Macro”

Lake Moogerah – Black Swans

We detoured to Lake Moogerah on the way home last Monday, was raining, but still stopped to get a couple of quick photos of the Black Swans on the lake. Will have to come back in finer weather with a longer lens, to get some more “individual” shots of the beautiful birds. There was aContinue reading “Lake Moogerah – Black Swans”

Top Notch Pigeon

Ok, it has been a rainy few days in Brisbane, so have not been out to take photos. So revisiting photos from previous weeks, and here we have a common Top Notch Pigeon, strutting around Mount Cootha Botanical Gardens. Certainly not as colourful as a Kingfisher, although there is some nice colours in his wingContinue reading “Top Notch Pigeon”

Hover Fly – Family Syrphidae

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.     Cheers Dave
