Ten Top Animal Shots - Here's a round up of the best animal photos from Discreetphoton's 365 blog.
This image is of David's cat, Jay. "The warm evening light contrasts rather well with the bluer shaded areas against the peeling paint of a wooden door, to create a pleasing backdrop," explains David.
Nikon D300; Tamron 18-270mm @ 18mm; 400 ISO; f/16; 10 seconds. VC off.This beautiful image of the humble snail was taken with a close up dioptre on the lens. "The dioptre allowed me to reduce the working distance of the lens, (which is fixed at 50cm, no matter what focal length you set it to)," David says.
David snapped this photo on holiday in Cyprus. "The specimen above is a starred agama, a relative of the bearded dragon, and the largest lizard living in Cyprus," says David.
The black background of this image really makes the fish stand out. "I snapped this while having a walk around Wentworth Garden centre after work," adds David.
David took this beautifully crisp image on Curbar Edge while out walking. It really displays the hardiness of the cattle.
This beautiful falcon is accentuated by the low aperture. "It’s hard not to admire such handsome creatures as these," enthuses David.
Despite the annoyed look on the kitten's face, David assures us that he actually loves having a bath. "One of the great things about the Tamron is the fact that I can just pick up my camera in a hurry and know that I’ve got the right lens on it, no matter what unplanned subject I’m going to be shooting that day," he says.
David practised his panning skills on this Palmer's Wallaby. "It's a benefit of the Tamron for panning that it’s so small and light: your arms don’t get tired. The VC seems capable of limiting the stabiliser in one direction as well, which is a bonus for this sort of shot."
