A 365 Day Project

Animals

Day 361/365: Ready For Flight

I couldn’t help but post one more image of the King Parrots from Mum’s place. This pair were just about to take flight when I snapped them.

Day 329/365: Behind Bars

Our little girl Juno was not happy to be on the other side of the gate this afternoon when I was out the front shooting. Her eyes say a thousand words…

Day 317/365: Puppy Dog Eyes

Who could say no to this little miss?!

Day 310/365: Gallant Galah

Three galahs were munching away in the young eucalyptus sapling out the back this morning. Here is one of the gallant little guys!

Day 308/365: Dragonfly

I am not by any means a great nature photographer – I think I will leave that to the experts as I just don’t have the patience. With that said, I am pretty happy with my photo for today. I was out shooting our passionfruit flowers when this little guy buzzed past & settled on the lemon tree. I love the little sparks of blue down his back!

Day 303/365: Family Portrait

The love between a mother & baby is the same no matter what the species. This mum is certainly a good one, protecting her little filly at every hint of danger, and giving her little nuzzles all the time. This is their family portrait.

Family Portrait: Nikon D7000; f7.1; 1/320; ISO 400


Day 302/365: Spring Filly

Our neighbours across the road have been waiting tentatively for the arrival of their equine baby for a couple of weeks now. They had a few false alarms, but in the early hours of Friday morning the little filly made her entrance into the world. I too had been waiting, excited at the thought of capturing the foal in its first few days. I could have sat all afternoon watching her with her long, lanky legs, soft fluffy fur and inquisitive mind. She is just gorgeous!

Day 297/365: Juno

I needed to shoot when I got home from work today, so what better subject than our new girl, Juno. I admit I had help with this shot – John had to keep her sitting while I ran off a bunch of frames! She is such a happy, excitable little girl and after only 3 nights with us she is just one of our family already. This image has turned out as a perfect pet portrait!

Juno: Nikon D7000; f4.8; 1/60; ISO 400; Flash fired


Day 295/365: Cutting

Today was our annual school fundraiser, the Vacy Cutting Day. If you don’t know what it is, basically a rider and their horse have to cut a cow away from the herd and keep it away for a short period of time. It provides some good entertainment, and the horsemanship is spectacular. It certainly beats selling chocolates & raffle tickets! Here are two of my favourite action images from the day.

Oh No You Don't: Nikon D7000; f10; 1/1600; ISO 1000

 

Cutting One Away: Nikon D7000; f11; 1/1600; ISO 1000


Day 226/365: Bearded Dragon

This little fella wasn’t to happy with John for starting a fire right near his resting spot. He stood his ground and showed us how cranky he was!
