Thanks for the comments, Alison and Roy.

The morning after the dinner i got a headache, but aurora borealis - nope. Its further up north, and I've never seen it myself (tend to travel southwards when I can choose)

Great shots, Kjell!!! Talk about variety! Kissing roos, great performers, relaxing lake shots, AND simple wildlife! No personal favorite here ... enjoyed each one because they each have a different character to bring to the table! I wish I could have gotten a pic of the fiddler's hands as he was playing. I just have this "thang" for hands as they are performing or doing whatever function that they are doing.

Anyway, very interesting shots!

Without going into a nature and widllife lesson, there ara heaps of different types of Macropods in Australia and we tend to call the larger ones, (Western reds, Grey) Kangaroos or Roos.

They are quite large and I have come across a few that stood over 6 ft and trust me when they are ticked off at you and it is dark and they are angry, you don't want to be too close.



The ones we have here in Kjell's photo's are more of a wallaby which is like a smaller Macropod.



So now we are up to speed on Robins, Flacons and Buzzards and now Wallabys and Roos. Are we about to change direction with the forum and go "NatGeo"?

I put my hand up for official NatGeo Photographer position...:blah:

Phew, it's getting worse and worse. Macropod was the name of the very first fish I bought for my aquarium when I was nine years old. It could not jump and didn't thrive in semi-desert.

But I guess it's a bit natural that you can discriminate between different jumping mammals. How many different names for different types of snow do you use?

Nice photos, I expect there was no extra charge for "Birds in the Pasta".

Just got back from a week away also and am glad to be back in the US.

What lens did you use for the singer shots?

50 mm FA 1.4, it's kinda becoming my walkaround lens. Evening lake shots with the 16-45 kit lens (it's quite OK after all), the animals (including pasta) with the 200 mmA* 2.8.For those of ypu who master that art, is it possible to check the EXIF for my resized pictures? I use the "Save for the web" option in PSE3. If not, can that be solved in some not too complicated way?

"Waiter, there's a fly, sorry, there's a sparrow in my soup!"

Welcome back to home sweet home, Tom. Anything left in your pockets for boring things like food and shelter?

Kjell
