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

Beautiful Dead Roses   Leave a comment

Most people  like to see fresh flowers, and they can be very colourful and bright.

These started out like that, but then began to fade, and I saw a new beauty in them.

I love the browning of the edges of the petals,the pastels colours and the new shapes as the petalsstart to  droop.

Taken with 7D and Canon 60mm and 100mm macro ( non IS, not the L series 100mm lens I usualy use) lenses

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.
