Wildlife Visitors – March 2017

We’ve been very busy this month so I’ve had less time to be out taking photos. There have been plenty of creatures about that I’ve missed.

Macro Moments: Week 33

I had a very cooperative subject for this week’s challenge, a Wanderer Butterfly pupa with lovely glistening gold trim.

I have discovered that even if I have my Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ80 set to iA (intelligent auto) I can still find out the settings used. The shot was taken at f/3.3, 1/320, ISO 80, focal length 4mm. I might be misunderstanding the focal length but it seems to me that must be the depth of field.

I have lightened the photo a bit and also applied some unsharp mask using an old version of Photoshop Elements.

Wildlife Visitors in February

These are the wildlife visitors and residents I’ve managed to snap this month. As usual I’m frustrated by “the ones that got away”. Maybe next time!

City Dweller

I was cutting out some Ivy today at an Adelaide city townhouse less than 100 metres from what will be a racetrack on the weekend. I was startled when something flew out of the Ivy and past my face but I’ve a feeling that will be minor compared with the Owl’s experience when the Clipsal 500 V8 Supercars start roaring along East Terrace in 4 days time.
