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

Seagulls – Yes Seagulls – Inskip Point.   Leave a comment

We were up at Inskip Point last weekend, to visit family on Holidays there, as always looking for “Birding” opportunities.

So being at the beach, there was Seagulls in abundance, and while waiting for more interesting victims, they were the obvious targets.

Taken with 7D and 70-200mm Lens

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

Ibis’s in the park, Macro Style   1 comment

I went to Roma Street last Friday on the way to work, for a look around and to check out Macro possiblities.

So set up for Macro, with 60mm Macro lens, of course I would get a birding opportunity.

I captured this Ibis sitting on top of this post, looking very regal.

 

And then he flew off.

As previously mentioned, these were taken with 60mm Macro lens on a 7D.

Cheers Dave

Ducks in the afternoon sun.   Leave a comment

We went to the local Duck Pond, last Sunday afternoon and I captured these Ducks  in the afternoon light.

I was using a Kenko 1.4 teleconvertor with the 70-200, to see if I could get some quality photos, verdict is ( if there is good light) yes, so may use this combination again.

 

Cheers Dave

 

Grasshopper – experimenting with Extension Tubes for Macro Photography   5 comments

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 very heavy set up for macro)

This one was taken with 24-105mm again with 20mm Extension Tube on 7D ( both with external flash )

I was then going to take some photos with a proper Macro lens for comparison, but for some reason Mr Grasshoppper took offence at the flash going off in his face and flew away.

Cheers Dave
