Photographed at the Osprey Centre, near Brisbane, Qld, from their boardwalk over the mangrove wetlands.

This image went through to the semi final round in the Veolia Environment Wildlife Photographer of the Year Competition. As wildlife photography is not my main focus, but an ‘incidental’ I am well pleased.

In the late 1970s I completed the 2 years of a 4 yr Professional Photography Cert at TAFE, but was defeated by the physics of lenses.
In 2004 I bought my first DSLR & now shoot full time with medium format digital and professional Canon DSLRs.
I provide tuition to small groups via photography workshops for small groups (max 5) and Photoshop PP classes, and conduct small group photography tours to Australian & (soon) NZ destinations.

    I really can’t fault this in any way, it is absolutely superb, very impressive indeed for a handheld capture.

    Thanks Brett, I wish I could have been close enough to use the H2 but I only had the 80mm lens then. I do plan to go back there though.
