Short Beaked Echidna

Short Beaked Echidna

During a trip from Upper Beaconsfield through Guys Hill, my daugher and I came across a Short Beaked Echidna (Tachyglossus aculeatus) wandering through the bush on the side of the road. Having a love for photographing wildlife, I could not help but stop and take some photos from a reasonable distance so as to not scare the animal. This photo was taken with a Sony A7R 4 and Sigma 150-600mm telephoto. The camera settings were: 1/1250, f/6.3 & ISO 640. […]

Carlton Gardens

I visit the city occasionally to conduct testing. Late October I was conducting testing near the Carlton gardens so could not resist taking a Photo through the window.

Green Leaf Spider

During a walk around the garden my daughter managed to spot this green spider against a green leaf, to be honest I don’t have bad eysight however, not in a million years would I have spotted it. The spider was hiding on the surface of the leaf. Although I am not an entomologist, it looks like it might be Araneus talipedatus (slender green orb-weaver spider). The spider was not harmed in taking the photo. The photo was taken handheld with […]

Short-Beaked Echidna (Tachyglossus aculeatus)

I live in an area that is on the interface between a true urban and a semi-rural environment, because of that I am blessed with some incredible wildlife just a short distance from my home. Whilst travelling today I came across a Short-Beaked Echidna crossing a dirt road to get to the trees on the other side (I assume for ants). Whilst the environment was not the best to take some images (due to the long grass) I still couldn’t […]
