More photos from yesterday’s session and a rework of one of the B&W shots in glorious Technicolor.
First, a shot of Lily. That’s Lily the Skink, as made famous by the Scaffold.
These long-tailed skinks are normally notoriously skittish but this one seemed unconcerned as I edged ever so slowly closer. Note the tiny ant crawling on the lizard.
Very close to Lily was Tango, the Orange-tailed sprite.
I had to photograph Tango through a fence to get a decent angle. I would have liked the tail tip a fraction sharper.
I was always a big Beatles fan. So meet the beetle. Very slow shutter speed hence the moving antennae.
Everyone likes a butterfly and here’s Helen. Nectaring on the Lantana.
Steve likes frogs – how about Mr. Grumpy? Would Lottie give Grumpy a kiss, I wonder?
And to round things off, I decided yesterday’s B&W version of the rotting wood didn’t work as well as I had hoped. The rich colours add rather than subtract to this in my view.
Time to do some work now. Until next time.
