Just about to settle down the for the evening on Sunday, when I spotted this guy in the corner. (it might actually mean I can give a weekly photo challenge a go for this year...)
White Tail Face
Looks a bit ugly compared to some of the jumping spiders I've photographed before. (What is the world coming to when I'm considering the attractiveness of spiders?) White tails also apparently have a nasty bite which can cause severe reactions.
Usual set up - Nikon D7000, Tamron SP90, handheld single exposure, on camera flash + LED flash light.
Dropping a relative off at Melbourne Airport today, so took a bit of a walk around Woodlands park. Nice day - weather couldn't decide what to do 28C and a touch of sunburn, but tomorrow we're off in search of snow! Anyway, on to the pictures....
View across the park towards the airport
Carpets of wildflowers
And saving the best until last, an Echidna which my son spotted as we were just leaving.
All D7000, landscapes with 18-105 and animals with 70-300.
Serendip Sanctuary is a park located on the plains to the west of Melbourne, just south of the You Yangs hills. Whenever I am there it always seems deserted.
Owl (not so sure of what sort)
I'm surprised at how these worked out as they were all shot through the rather heavy inch square mesh that is visible in the backgrounds.
There are also some large wildfowl lakes.
And of course some marsupials - a wallaby with quite a large joey in the pouch.
All shots Nikon D7000, Nikkor 70-300 AFS
