Kingfisher – captured at last

I have been in a quest for a while to get a decent Photo of a Kingfisher, although not to the quality I would like, it is still a Photo of a Kingfisher, a fair crop from the actual photo, but flew away before I could get any closer. Good thing is, that I nowContinue reading “Kingfisher – captured at last”

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  

Blue Rutilia Fly – Rutilia (Neorutilia) simplex

I had the opportunity earlier in the week to get to the Parklands before work. I saw this Blue Fly, who stayed still long enough for me to get a couple of decent photos. I have a few other “bug photo” I got on the day, which hopefully will post soon. Cheers Dave

I am starting to like photographing Water Lilies as much asContinue reading “More Water Lilies”

So of course, first thing in the morning I go to the Dam down the back, to see what bird life isContinue reading “Horsepower of a different kind”
