Wildlife photography is about bush, trees, grasses etc. I like what you did to get the shot and how you got it.
The authenticity of the shot adds to your image.
Not your typical Zoo or rehab shot where you see the fine details of fur or feathers of the subject that is less then 5 feet away. For not having a $2000 camera and $6,000 telephoto lens and $300 ext. You have done well with the Fuji S5000 and there is nothing wrong with it.
Two thumbs up on this one.
Ps. I have found that the S5000 works best on CCD RAW, it takes up alot of space, but worth it.

Wild animals aren't models. I tried to photograph some sparrows in the bush today but with no luck. My Olympus resisted to set proper focus and then sparrows disappeared. Your picture maybe isn't technically perfect but worth watching!
Good genuine wild capture Chris some branches in the way but as has already been said nice one with the available equipment.
As mike says always try to use the best possible quality type of image your camera will allow, i know it will cut down the number you can get onto a merory card but it is worth it of the better images gained, you just have to review and deleat a few more.

One cute little critter - I think you did well in nailing him at all, and that in the wild. Nice note to, thanks for posting.
Good one Chris.It has the real feel of a candid shot in the wild.I reckon an imperfect shot in the wild is worth ten perfect shots taken in a zoo anyday.
I hear New Zealand has just sent back a whole bunch of rare Wallabies from Oz that have been living on our offshore islands for about a hundred years.
I saw some of them once when I was camping on Waiheke.

La nitidez tal vez no sea óptima, pero comparto los comentarios anteriores sobre la valía de esta imagen capturada en medio de la naturaleza.
Excelente presentacion Crhis.
Perhaps the clearness is not optimal, but I share the previous commentaries about was worth it of this image captured in the middle of the nature.
Excellent presentation Crhis.

Seeing what you have gon through to take this I wont comment on the distracting. I also try and take most of my shots in the wild and you cannot choose the setting and has to make do with what you get. I like the image.
hanks for posting
