Ducking Ducks

Ducking Ducks by gwynn56

It's down here somewhere.



I find the animal tracks interesting. Some look like bicycle tyre tracks but probably snakes pushing against the sand. We used to get a TV programme, here, called the Bush Tucker Man. He was in the Australian army and it was his job to investigate bush tucker and survival methods. He wore a felt hat with a dent low at the front rising to tall at the back like a shark fin in profile.

You don't appear to be short of light to make your photos. Smile

Thanks for sharing the local information.

Spring Bee

Spring Bee by MetalMickee

Good job. I use this lens too. It will take a full set of extension tubes which doubles the magnification. A problem with the extension tubes is that there is no exif information when you come to check the photos later so it is impossible to know when they were used unless there is some scale in the view. A notebook or a voice recorder might be the answer. I need to check if an initial flash will stun a insect long enough to take a second shot, bees never stay still long enough and mostly have their heads down. This is a great face to face shot. I use a flat sheet of expanded polyethylene closed cell foam A4 size fixed to the SB900 flash with a couple of elastic bands. With the flash pointing forward this slightly floppy sheet acts a canopy and deflects the flash down beyond the lens thus avoiding lens shadow on the subject. It is all very portable.

Nice against the reflection of green on the water.

Some photos just make the effort of getting out there in the cold worthwhile. Dare I say, "Cool." Great colour.

Nikon 600mm F5.6 MF plus teleconverter or crop factor (1.5) to 900mm, some sharp shooting!

Black-faced bunting by Newdawei

Hi Newdawei,

Nice photo, I was guessing a focal length of 300mm but I notice the data shows 400mm. Does this data mean that you used a 2x teleconverter on the maximum focal length of your lens (200mm)? I don't have a teleconverter so I don't know how this shows in the data. I use the Nikon 105mm macro sometimes with and sometimes without a set of extension tubes. It is not possible to tell from the EXIF data if the extension tubes were on or off the lens when a picture was taken.

Great depth of field in the field. Grin

circus preperations

circus preperations by gwynn56

Don't have much against hosting the Olympics but part of the idea is that there is some betterment, social housing, training facilities etc. but here the turf will have to be lifted again, hardly a Champs-Élysées in the making. Maybe it will go to returf some Council property. Great photo, one for the history books. Assume that grass hasn't been added in Photoshop. Tongue

May Day 2012... by debu

Beautiful image. A land of many cultures and expectations. Just the right shutter speed to detect the movement of the hand towards the brick mould. Good colour and lighting.

Not sure how this was done, possibly a fisheye looking up from the ground on low ISO and a long exposure. This, I think, would give the contrast of the trunks and slight movement towards the tops of the trees but not sure if this would result in the circular movement of the clouds. Possibly these were added later to fill an over exposure of the sky?
Anyway, very nice result.

You haven't told us what it is. Looks like a rope has been wrapped round a pole, a toddler with tricycle attached, front and rear lights switched on and allowed to cycle out keeping the rope taught. Slow exposure, several days later when the battery has run down he reaches the outer limits. Smile

Ants trail...

Perfect depth of field, detail, colour and interest.
Like looking at this photo. Great curves.

Bite me!

Bite me! by Angi_Wallace

Great detail and colour. I am assuming that this is a composite using three images of the same snake.
Not a snake expert but I think the fangs are hinged towards the front of the upper jaw and lie back on either side of the mouth until the strike when the points come down and forward. It is possible that they are visible in the mouth facing the camera as what appears to be a set of gum lines.
It’s a striking photograph.
