    I knew it was worthy of having the pics in a book!

        I would love to have half your computer and processing skills.
        Cheers, Brad.

          Thanks chaps. I have a lot of fun doing this stuff in Photoshop and I write many "actions" which I give away to Photoshop users. Glad you like.

            Very generous of you Isac, you have an admiral spirit.
            I am almost tempted to convert to Adobe so I can take advantage of your generosity.

          While taking a very quick break from the tiling, I looked out

          the kitchen window and saw this Mum with her Joey on the edge of the treeline, soaking up some morning sun.
          A quick change of lenses and out the door I went.

          Just after I took this shot, she said "come along Joey, lets get out of here"

            Lovely images of nature at work in your very own backyard! You're spoilt and we are so envious.

              Saw this picture in our local newspaper so I thought I would send it to you.The photographer is Eko Adiyanto. Its a great shot but looking at his profile his work is not as natural as yours.Some of his shots look too

              staged,,,,almost like he could be spraying them or even gluing his subjects. What is your opinion.?

                That is a great shot, I saw it in Saturdays Courier Mail also. I didn't check out his other work.

                There are some photographers that kill or freeze the insects so they can get their shots, I don't agree with this approach ( not saying this guy does that, I haven't seen his other work )
                I believe in taking my shots of the insects in their natural settings and not harming them at all.
                Cheers, Brad.

                  I just checked out Eko's website, he has some quality photos on there. I think they are all natural, he is obviously very skilled with his lighting and composition.

                  Not sure if you have seen Mark Berkery's work, I like his approach and ethic - https://beingmark.com/macro-illustrated/

                  Cheers, Brad.

                      I went for a walk this morning, D7100, Tamron 150-600, I used a Yongnou 568 speedlight and Better Beamer.
