People sometimes ask me how fast my camera is. I answer: "It is fast. It takes five photos in a second with shutter speed up to 1/8000." What does this mean in real life? The illustration is below. These images were taken in a shadow at dusk at ISO 640 and speed of 1/2000. I could have probably achieved better result at 1/1600. This is a point and shoot sequence. What I did was to choose the settings i thought would be appropriate for the lighting conditions and the action that I was about to photograph, then wait, then follow the target and press and hold the button. The photos came out underexposed so I did some color correction in Photoshop. The newer DSLR models should be even faster, have better auto-focus and produce more detailed images.

I'm creating a new label today – Be sure not to miss... With it I will tag posts that link to other posts on other nature blogs or sites. Every now and then I come across posts that I like so much and I think that visitors of my blog would like too...
And to start with, here's a link to a fantastic post about a Tawny Frogmouth family. Be sure not to miss it!
I've been thinking to create a promotional button for Portraits of Australian Animals for its anniversary, but then I didn't have the time. Now the button is ready and you can easily post it to your sites or blogs by copying and pasting the code below:
Visitors from Japan – the arrogant, savage dolphin and whale slaughtering nation are NOT welcome to browse the pages of this bloG!

For about three years, 2007 - 2009, many of my better photos used to get published on this bloG. Due to frequent abuse of the images and a few other reasons I have decided to take a long (or indefinite) break from blogging.
