My spot!
Lens: DA*300 f4 Camera: K5iis Photo Location: Canberra, Australia 
Posted By: RobG, 08-10-2014, 06:42 AM



I went for a walk in Commonwealth Park at sunset. With most of the people gone, the birds were feeding before dark. The Black Swans could be aggressive about the best spot!



The Purple Swamphen looks rather prehistoric to me.



I love the bokeh in this image of Pacific Black Ducks.



This scene looks dreamlike to me.



A Little Pied Cormorant was fishing in the lake.



This female Magpie Lark seems to have a goose-step happening!



Another Purple Swamphen was complaining loudly about my presence.



The National Carillon.



A statue of Sir Robert Menzies, Australia's longest serving Prime Minister.



Something spooked the Coots, and it was every bird for themselves!



But afterward, the Coot settled down for the night.



I was amazed to see this native Water Rat also fishing for an evening meal in the lake.



Another dreamlike image courtesy of the DA*300's narrow DOF. Bokeh amongst the rushes.

One the way back to the car, I passed a sea of mesh.



It seemed to be set up to protect the flowers being grown for the spring festival from frost.


It was a short walk, but I saw and heard about 25 species of birds and saw one native rodent - as well as an imported one; a rabbit. I saw some interesting things and captured a couple of nice photos. An evening walk well spent!

Thanks! I'd have liked to have caught the tips of the rushes but they were too tall to get the angle right!

Thank you! It was really cold out in the breeze, but the photos made it worthwhile.
