Birds of Carnarvn Gorge   Leave a comment

Part 2, to my posting of photos from my weekend in Carnarvon Gorge – a collection of some of the bird photos I took out there .

First up some Emus sighted on the way in, was great to see them in the wild.

I was standing next to this tree trying to get another photo of the Kookaburra, when this parrot landed only about a metre away.

Scaly Breasted Lorikeet   Leave a comment

I dragged out the old Sigma 150-500, as I rarely use it, thinking I should sell it, so to sell it I need some sample photos.

The first attempt came up with this Scaly Breasted Lorikeet feeding on the flowers of a Golden Cane Palm.

These were shot at between 400mm – 500mm, and cropped slightly for better composition.

Okay doing more sample shots over the next few weeks, lets see what this lens is capable of.

Cheers Dave

Rainbow Lorikeet   Leave a comment

I love photographing wildlife, and especially the native birds, this time a Rainbow Lorikeet, really like the colours of these birds.

I think she was bossing her partner around.

 

This time using the 7D, shot in Raw, processed in CS5, 190mm, F2.8, 1/200, taken in AV mode.

 

Cheers Dave
