Today we have a selection of images from Zealandia. This was the first time I had used the camera after the firmware upgrade and I was keen to see if there would be any improvement in the auto-focus. I am happy to day that I found using AFC much better with the birds than in […]
My cousin also has a Lumix G9 and whenever we get the opportunity, we get together so I can teach her one new thing about her camera. By restricting it to one feature at a time, she finds it easier to remember and practice before moving to something else. This trip long exposure was the […]
I travel to Auckland and back a lot these days and when there is time I like to call in to Butterfly Creek. I have been there a lot and have noticed a lot of changes over the years. This time I was pleased to note that many of the plastic plants have been replaced […]
Ever since I moved to the Wellington Region, I have wanted to go to Kapiti Island. I am not sure why it has taken nearly 23 years to do it, but thanks to a Hutt Camera Club field trip, I finally got there. Of course now I wish I had gone earlier and often! Everywhere […]
More images from Tiritiri, this time just bellbirds. Usually I only get to see the males, this time I got to see fledglings and females as well. They really are a beautiful bird with a beautiful song.
I came home with so many images to process from this trip that it is taking me some time to get through them all. I am super pleased with these images of the hihi and bellbirds, and of course the saddleback. Enjoy 🙂
The Australasian Gannet’s breeding season is almost at a close. There are still some adult birds in the colony feeding up their chicks so they are ready for their great journey to Australia. Some who have hatched late in the season still with their fluffy white coats, stand out among their peers with their juvenile […]
Late last year I booked a trip to Tiritiri Matangi Island for this February. It has been many years since I visited the island and I had never taken the Lumix G9 there at all. So I was keen to see how it performed in difficult light and with fast moving birds at the same […]
This post is a little late because I ended up in Auckland for a few days after the shoot. However this little guy is just too cute not to be shared on my blog.
Every year I manage to find a photographic subject to obsess over and it appears that this year’s so far, is the dragonfly. Why? Because they are so much of a challenge to capture in flight. I have always enjoyed a challenge and the dragonflies are certainly that! These images also include a damselfly in […]
