another mistake which I kinda like. I was trying to pan but he took off so fast I got a blur. The bright yellow light is the evening sun lighting up the fields beyond

Taken in Witchclyffe, Nr Margaret River, WA.

Nikon D700, 105mm macro lens, ISO640, f/11, 1/20 sec, +.7 step, handheld.


blur, bush, christmas card, dusk, kangaroo, leaping, movement

. Feeling satisfied with a new photograph … that makes it a good day.

    But, it’s rather a NICE blur Nadine.

  • thanks so much, elaine – I’m beginning to like my mistakes better than my OK shots – i wonder if that means I’m moving forward or backward in my pohotography :)

    Yes, it _does_convey speed and it is a nice blur. Fast mammals, eh? I love that “spirit of the bush” title, Nadine!

  • thanks jan – I have heaps of shots where they’re clear but this one seemed to have more soul in it.
