thank you The Gang-gang in flight was of course completely accidental / unplanned :-) Luckily the camera was still in AF-C from me trying to shoot a plane just before (they were ordinary - just too far away with that short lens).

A sample of pics from today - opportunistic shots at Weston Park. Nice afternoon light. I love Gang-gangs - I was trying to get close as I only had the 17-50 with me. These are cropped pretty heavily. early this month - ornamental pears (?) in the neighbour's front yard.... Continue reading

yum yum it was such a glorious weekend weatherwise too. I am very offended by that wine label - so violent. >:-o

Thanks :-) It is good for macro because it sits low, whereas the SB600 is too high. And it can be adjusted for manual output through the camera menu too.
I ordered a little tiny tripod over the weekend and amazingly it arrived today. The idea is to have something I can brace against the wall for shooting jumping spiders. Thought about a gorillapod but heard they are prone to squish down under weight/pressure, and, perhaps more importantly, if they... Continue reading

Changed the outside tap today, eventually. Not without a few moments of consternation and misgiving. Thought I might damage the copper pipe behind it from tortional forces ... despite holding on tight with another spanner on the outlet nut. It was soooooooooooooooo tight, and I ended up stripping one of... Continue reading

Snapped through the window with the venerable D60 (closest too hand). She made a rush just afterwards but the pee wee was way too quick. Continue reading

they are very nice - saga-esque and very lifelike. very 'unmodern'.
yes indeed. we slept 2 nights last weekend in the Sportiva Outlook. He didn't want to sleep in a tent last night. I too caved and slept in a bed. We have slept in the Green Lakeside camping 3 times. I have decided that the Green Lakeside can go up for sale.

Redbacks are always dispatched. In fact I read the other day that they may be considered an invasive species. It has been deduced that they originally were restricted to a small part of South Australia but have since hitched rides with us all over the country and the world. I took a picture of this one as the markings were so striking.
