Hi Lisa,

Wonderful shot of this little Tassie Devil, the 1/50th might have been just a little slow resulting in the slight loss of detail due to some movement.

Having said that what a great capture, love the open mouth those teeth can really do some serious damage, I might have got a little lower down to change the POV, but thats not always possible, and be careful if you do.

I laid down on the grass once shooting an Eastern Water Dragon with a 400mm lens, not quite sure if it saw its refelection in the lens but it moved real fast towards, and I nearly ended up in the lake, all the best

Cheers Rick :)

Hi Jeanne,

A great catch, the detail in the head and neck is excellent, your choice of apperture was perfect, placing the head and body in perfect focous but tapering out the length of the tail, this almost give it a 3d effect, really nice.

I might have got down to eye level for a different perspective but be careful, the last time I did that in the Botanic gardens I was useing a 400mm so the dragon even though was some distance away it looked pretty close.

Just as I was about to get the shot it took a couple of steps towards me, I tell you I nearly endedd up in the lake they move pretty dam quick, then again so did I :)

Hi Bob,

Seems a little strange looking at this, its 8.18 in the morning here in Brisbane, the temp outside is 32deg, about 85f, not much cooler inside and officially were still in spring?

Just looking at this almost has a cooling effect even if it is just for a brief moment until the fan behind comes around again, really nice shot mate,

Cheers Rick :)

That is one very impressive bird, is it really that big! Excellent detail in the plumage, perfect blue sky back drop, and from your notes she sounds like a deadicated mother, really nice work.

Hi Nara,

This is a stunning looking bird, the colours are amazing, such a pity its now on the endangered list, I've taken the liberty of just tweeking it a little in a W/S just to bring out the B/G hope you don't mind,

Hello Jacqueline,

I can see I've missed a few of your posting lately, no excuses just busy at work and trying to find the time to get everything done.

This is a real stunner, the colours are amazing, the detail is superb, framing and composition all perfect, really beautiful work, I love it.

As for the noise you mentioned in your notes "Neat Image" should help its a free download, I have used it and its a really good little programe. (but you might know that already)

All the best, Rick :)

Hi Pam,

What a stunner, the colours of this Tui are amazing, and you've captured it perfectly, excellent detail in the plumage, your choice of aperture was spot on in isolating it perfectly against the OOF background, and the orange/red flowers really makes this image, just an awesome shot, love it.

Hi Razvan,

Really like this shot of a Great Egret, excellent detail in the whites, and stands out well within its natural suroundings.

Just a small comment a virtical crop would also suit this, especally if the Egrets refelction was part of the whole image.

Other then that really nice job, Cheers Rick :)

Hello Ivan,

I seem to have missed several of your postings of late, no excuses just really busy and lacking a little motivation to get further then the backyard.

This is a real stunner, the detail in the plumage is superb, and the love the POV of the capture, and I see this was shot at 2pm yet it has that wonderful early evening glow to it, especially around the back of the bird, just beautiful, really nice work.

All the best, cheers Rick :)
