"Just Us Here (so go away!)"
Lens: Pentax HD DA 55-300mm f/4.5-6.3 ED PLM WR RE Lens Camera: Pentax KP Photo Location: White Rocks, Ipswich Qld ISO: 800 Shutter Speed: 1/320s Aperture: F8

Very late afternoon, these two were in mainly shade, some 40- 70 metres away. Yeah, I know - my distance "guesstimate" covers a wide range. I am lousy at estimating things like that. Suffice to say, I really would have liked to have gotten a lot closer, but this was an "insurance" shot. Sure enough, when I did try to carefully close the gap, off they went!

So this is what you get. Cropped, and lightened up a little using the Ricoh Digital Camera Utility app.

Nice shot. The big boy is well muscled up and has impressive front paws. I would guess he is the boss around there.

This reminds me of a family photo from the 1800s.

Indeed, the pose is perfect. You were perfectly right to take a picture as soon as you can. Those animals are not known for their bravery! Thanks for sharing this nice shot!

Yes, there is no doubt they were telling me that they knew I was there.

Yes, I think their dual pose is what gave this shot some character.

@Photogoof, hee hee, I never thought of that "1800s" family pose, but yes - stiff-backed, no smiles, staring straight at the photographer!

Yes - although I wanted to get closer, I certainly didn't want to get to the point where they might have felt I was invading their space. Those "hopping" feet can disembowel if used seriously - and they do do stomach kicks against each other.

Thanks everyone for the interest!
