Was at another park again, and today manage to spot this large Male Two-Striped Telamonia . If it did not move I may have missed it. Large span across, and really great jumping capability....saw it really jump very far!

This time, due to limitations of my camera, I used A mode for some, as in M mode, my EVF is too dark for me to frame the shots (have to agar agar). So in A mode, its F8 and 1/60s default shutter.

Setup: Fz10+6T+Sigma CU, Ext bounce flash, ISo 50, F8 various speeds

#1
1/60s


#2:
1/400s


#3:
1/60s


#4:
1/320s


Appreciate any comments please...Thanks!

Tchuanye: These are awesome photographs! You have wonderful clarity and DOF, and an almost science-fiction like subject.

Amazing and fantastic clarity...I know they are God's creatures, but I'll stick to kangaroos (if the blighters would only stand still!)

Thanks Tomcat5470, bootneck and Ride16!

Indeed they are God's creatures, and well designed too, with superb vision and superb jumping skills.
