Native grass flower, Kangaroo grass. Not really noticeable, unless you get up close. Most folk see grass as just....grass.

Very nice! Never knew grass could be so beautiful.
Thanks serendipidy. We are just finishing orchid season (down here in Australia) and now the native grasses make their appearance (kangaroo grass, wallaby grasses, etc). They are a little different to the garden variety grasses, as they can stand 50-100cm tall. But spectacular up close ;)

Tawny Frogmouth on nest. Not a true owl, but a member of the Nightjar family of birds. A difficult one to spot as they blend in with the bark of the tree. Unfortunately, we found the body of a dead chick, on the ground below this nest. Hopefully, they have a second chick under this adult.

Butcher bird, the male. Currently, the pair are building a nest behind my place. We've already had one pair with young this season.

Playing around with some Antelope Canyon shots from a couple of years ago...people typically accentuate the colors, thought I'd try something different.  Hopefully I didn't go overboard  ;D

Awesome. Beautiful B&W. Well done.
+1. I do love a good BW, and this is stunning. I can almost see the colours :)

Young Flame robin about to be fed by mum. The males have a black head, and a much redder chest.
5D3 with 300mm f4. Challenging light, very late in the day, back lit by bright cloud and a shutter speed of 1/160 or slower. Just hold the button down and hope something comes out of it :)

White faced Heron. I noticed him yesterday, on my neighbors dam. Unfortunately, I didn't have the camera setup and ready. Today, we did :)

Very nice Bean!
Thanks Krob78. Its a tricky, secluded spot to get a good, clear picture. So, I'm happy with this one :)

Love this little lens.  For the price and the image quality you get out of this little guy, it's the best bang for the buck.
+1. I'm finding I have it on the camera probably 75% of the time, rather than the 50mm f1.4 as its very compact, sharper and has great contrast. A very underrated lens.

Few from me :)




Seascapes okay?







Cheers! :)
Thanks for sharing g2, great pic's. I'm particularly drawn to the first one. The isolation of the tree seems to draw my eye into the rest of the image :)

Recently took a trip to San Francisco. Took lots of photos with my 5D3. Also, just got a Flickr account. I will try to post some using my Flickr. I hope this works. Here are some hummingbird shots.
Beaut pics serendipidy. Tack sharp.
What lens?

serendipidy did you use artificial light with your humming bird shots?
And that was my next question :)

While you took the pic in San Francisco I can't help but think the type of red flower is a eucalyptus :)

Does this well also, very versatile Lens.

Shot Komodo National Park Indonesia
Awesome explosion of color.  This lens has been in my bag the second longest of my current collection, and won't be going anywhere for the foreseeable future.
+1. Love the pic, and yes, this lens is one of my most used. Always in the bag these days :)

Okay, sunset take 2. I've removed the red flare. Thanks for the suggestion Krob78  :)
