Not a perfect photo, but I hope its interesting.
Found this guy flapping around near my pond, he couldn't fly properly, he'd keep tipping upside down
and flap around on the ground. So I took him indoors to save him from the birds. Although I tried to feed him he died the next day.  Just wonder if he was "born" that way or if a bird got him?

His eyes look deflated :o
What and how did you try to feed him?
Yes they do, normally I would have guessed that the eyes were full of something, but having seen this I assume
that they are just a mass of optic cells on some kind of carrier structure, and that got pushed in somehow.
We tried to give him small mealyworms. Put them down in front of him, but I guess he couldn't see them.

I sort of noticed the funny side of Menace's comment, you know the bit where someone freezes the subject to the point they are slow to move, then shoots them ?? shoots them ?? see the funny side at all ?? No ? must be an Aussie Kiwi thing.

Being a Brit I noticed it straight away too.

Many types of live insect bait are kept in the fridge, when you take them out and they warm up they seem OK.
Not saying that they enjoy it though. I guess they'll see it as a snap frost or something

Hi Jock.
Very nice shot, but shouldn't it be in the shot from behind gallery?  ;D
It does appear to be posed for you.
Nicely caught.

Cheers Graham.


Anyone know what happened to that gallery, I cant seem to find it?
I have a shot that would fit there perfectly.
Cheers Brian

Are you thinking of this thread?

Edit: recently added my contribution to the above


@Menace, exactly. I was searching with "Behind" instead of "Rear". Thanks very much.
Cheers Brian

I think these two photographs are my best landscape shot to date.  Thanks for viewing.
