    What was the distance on the Grebe? The sharpness is great. Love the water drops coming off the back.

    Probably about 15 mtrs. I can hop the fence and get to the edge of the water while he's diving.

    Nice! Love the last one where she is looking straight at you.
    So what is your new camera? My wife has just got a Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ80 with an awesome zoom built in.
    Went out on the motos today to try and get a shot of major mitchell cockies that can sometimes be found out in the Mallee but no luck. Very windy so not good for wildlife shots.

    My place in Tas has a nesting pair of New Holland honey eaters, they return every year. Very very protective of their young.

    Phone cameras have come so far a lot of people arent bothering with compact cameras

    If you pair them up with some cool lenses and maybe a gimbal its amazing what they can do.

    https://www.shopmoment.com/shop

    Also comes with software to allow more control of your phone camera

    Very cool stuff

    Where are your shots from ktmgeoff? Looks beautiful.

    Dave, we take the galah for granted but I spent a year working with a Canadian in the Riverland of SA and of all the great wildlife we showed him, the galah was his favourite. We gave him a Jeromie Boot print of galahs on a waterhole to take home and he was nearly in tears. Great shots.

    Unclegra, I used to drive trucks across the big paddock. Nothing better than seeing Majors on Nitraria bushes in the early sunrise. Of course no photos at 100km/h from a road train.....
