    My wildlife encounters over the years

    Hey there, since I don't want to spam this Forum with hundreds of new threads, I'd like to show some of my encounters in one threat that goes on and on. I hope it's ok if I do so and I'm always looking to get honest reviews. 😅 I'd like to start with some shots I took up in New Hampshire...

    Hello from Bavaria

    Hey there, I'm Martin, I'm from Bavaria and I do mostly Wildlife photography since ~2010. English obviously isn't my first language but I hope, you're able to understand my posts and take it easy on grammar and spelling errors 😅 I've started with a Canon EOS 1000D, had a EOS 550D until last...

    Muskrat Love

    I havent seen a muskrat since I was a kid swimming in the local river. So it was a surprise to find this wet and dark little fellow gnawing on the fresh green leaves beside a little pond we drove by after I picked up Anne from her mothers house. Olympus E-M1 mkII w/75-300mm @300mm (600mm equiv)

    Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge, New Mexico, 2018 If not for a large aperture lens, this guy could easily blend into the background. His colors are so similar to the fall foliage.

    Ospreys in flight

    Getting into Wildlife Photography

    Hi all, I hope this isn't too much of a tiresome question (I did a search and couldn't find a post that properly answered my question). I've been looking at getting into wildlife photography, with an emphasis on bird photography and plan on taking it seriously. As an undergraduate zoologist who...

    Australia Burning

    This is the new Parliament House in Canberra last Sunday morning, on a day when Canberra was measured to have the worst air quality of any city in the world due to smoke from the massive fires to our east on the south coast of New South Wales and also fires about fifty kilometres to our west...

    I've recently added a 600mm f/4 lens to my toybox toolbox. It's a beast and it attracts too much attention, but having said this I'll let the photos speak for themselves.
