Weekend Wanderings: A Couple of Mornings in Banyule Flats
To start with I must make some apologies, WordPress have now changed it so you HAVE to use their new editor. I really hate it, it is so small on my large screen and it is so hard to read the writing. So please excuse me if I make mistakes that I can’t see. We should all complain, there was absolutely nothing wrong with the old editor. That option is now gone. Before we know it we will be stuck with the new and worse stats page as well.
Anyway, I am going to try and do this, it is killing my eyes because it is so small that everything is going gooey in front of my eyes, but let’s visit Banyule Flats again.
I have some more photos of the sunrise shots I got, not a lot, but some taken in a couple of places. It was such a lovely morning for photos and my plan is to go back soon, try going back often. I am bound to get some amazing shots if I keep going back.
Yesterday morning I took the Tamron 150-600mm there to see what I could get. There weren’t a lot of birds, but it was nice to see an Ibis and a Heron there, I even identified that it was a Heron, I think I might be getting better. Don’t ask me what sort of heron, no idea about that. This was taken right across the swamp. I had to crop it quite a bit.
We went for a wander and saw some wasps on some wood so I thought I would try the lens on them. Not bad. Again, I had to crop it quite a bit, but I think the definition is quite good.
This is the cocoon for a swift moth and apparently seeing these on the ground is a good sign, means autumn is on its way. I am glad to hear that, and in fact we could see many trees starting the change, so will be spending quite a bit of time there I think with the wide angle. This image was taken with the 50mm.
I put the 150-600mm back on to photograph some Tawny Frogmouths. I thought I was getting nothing, so imagine my surprise when I got home to find that I not only got a good shot, I also got one of it looking straight at me. They are usually asleep when I go.
I am going to put more photos into a gallery for you now, more shots of the sunrise and more birds. I hope you have a wonderful weekend, and have lots of plans. I will be out shooting with another Blogger today, so that will be a lot of fun.
