Happy 3rd shed!

My darling Kwayteow had its (haha still don't know its sex!) third shed (since coming home with me last year) yesterday!

What a happy little python after going through the ordeal of crawling out of its skin!

ANOTHER photo!

itsy bitsy (or not) spider...
Ok I admit.. a little unsharp mask from photoshop saved this one... the original was slightly lacking contrast. So now I have TWO pictures from the trip.. hurrah...

ONE photo!!!

Ok, so here's how it goes... Monash Photography Club organises this trip to the You Yangs, citing spectacular views and heaps of wildlife.

Turns out, its more of a social event than a photography trip, and a bunch of about 50 of us take a short 40min walk up a little peak, making enough noise to scare away anything with ears in a 50m radius of the group. On top of that its a rushed walk, leaving hardly any time to compose photos, sniff the flowers etc. Why the rush? A Barbecue lunch... food's always the culprit isn't it??

Ok so I've dragged myself out of bed early on a Saturday morning, taken a 1 1/2hr bus ride to the You Yangs, and find myself amongst a bunch of chatty uni students who sound kinda like a fish market (don't get me wrong, they were a great bunch, but hey I really wanted to get some photos out of the trip... after all it was supposed to be a "photography trip"!). Then, to rub it in, in the rush to keep up with the group, I fumbled and dropped my camera while mounting it to a monopod, effectively ending the useful life of my trusty 70-300mm lens. Great, there goes all hope of wildlife now, not to mention the photography assignment worth 50% that I'll have to do in the coming week.

In all though, I got ONE photo out of it. So here it is. Had to take it with my 50mm, so this is a majorly cropped photo, but hey, I'm glad I didn't come home empty handed after all! Hmm... and maybe I have a new excuse to pick up a nice 400mm 5.6L prime! Wonder if my parents will fund that.... ah quit dreaming Chris!

More feather flapping friends...

Tawny Frogmouth. Also a master of camouflage.
Ok he didn't have feathers but hey, he had "plumage" of his own!
View all 4 photos...
Here are some more of the bird photos I said I'd put up from the Serendip Sanctuary trip. There's more to come, but hey I'm a busy student... and no, I didn't steal the turtle photo from Jas!
