Misc Nature Photo's Thread

Post  2wheelsagain on Tue 11 Jan 2011, 2:00 pm

Since yesterdays off topic hijacking of re-cycled's ride thread, Gus and I have been challenging each other via PM to post our best nature photo.

I'm sure he wont mind if anyone else joins in. There's some good snappers amongst us.
No prizes. Just share your best work.

Rules;
I think we'll limit it to one pic each per day
Anything to do with nature.
No photoshopping except for basic adjustments.
If you're a professional you should declare it in the post.
Max 1000 pixels wide.
Description optional.

Here's the big G's effort today. Taken at home today.


Here's mine. Taken at Walhalla last year


Come on, join in Smile

I wasn't really worried and it was in the "Photos and Videos" section. Very Happy
Hopefully you guys have worked out that I don't take things/myself too seriously. Smile

Anyway, I'm up for this, one photo a day, just looking through mine this is going to take some time. Laughing

Lace Monitor (Tree Goanna)

Approx 2 metres long and easily 30kg
This monster lived under our house for a month or 2.
He wasnt worried about the dog and the dog kept his distance.

Not my fault, I noticed the file name of the image, googled Mt Mitre and someone had erroneously posted a photo on a travel blog labeled Mt Mitre, just can't trust some people. Very Happy

Last Feb while searching for a "cash crop" in one of our parks I walked into a spider web that almost stopped me as if I had walked into a cyclone fence.
These things build tough webs!
We didnt find the "crop" but found where it had been about a week earlier.
