I had to drop our car off for a mechanical inspection yesterday morning. I had a camera in the car already so I went for a walk down the street & ended up in two local reserves. It was a joy to discover some of the creatures about & fun/challenging to catch some in digital image.
The night before on the way home from work I pulled over
& took some shots of an approaching storm around sunset.
The water dragons were telling me to back off I think,
but also just as ready to do the bolt if I invaded their comfort zone anymore
(I have never had one shape up to me like that & it was a fair distance away too.)
I have seen chameleons behave like that on the net.
I had stumbled across the mother duck with ducklings not seeing them to the last moment.
I reversed up the track so as not to alarm them any further but eventually came across them again on a looping track, it was then that they took refuge in the creek.
The small & delicate birds were chirping away here & there.
The Jezebel butterfly came to rest as I was walking along.
I am really enjoying the old school manual focus lens.
The car passed its rego inspection.
