Eastern Grey Kangaroo or Macropus giganteus

I visited Cardinia Reservoir Park on the way home from work to try and get some landscape shots and actually came across the Eastern Grey Kangaroo or Macropus giganteus, often at dusk the park is full of Kangaroo’s and this trip was no exception however I was not expecting the little Joey in the Kangaroo’s pouch. I was using a Nikon D5300 digital camera and a Tamron 150-600mm lens and because it was getting dark I decided to use Aperture priority […]

Whilst I was up there I […]

Salticidae or Jumping Spider on a black porcelain tile.

I noticed outside a number of jumping spiders, and having had some success with a black porcelain tile I thought it would be worth another try but with a different spider (last time was a flower spider). There are plenty of jumping spiders outside my house so I safely collected one, put it on the tile and started taking pictures as it wandered around the tile. The images were taken with a Nikon D5300 digital camera, and a Sigma 150mm […]
