HI all,

It's been a while since I posted some shots from my regular-ish trips to various zoo's and the English countryside! Here's a few for critique/feedback, good or bad, it's all part of learning for me:

(makes a change from my normal uploads of various snakes and reptiles!)

Cheers!

    I like the owl shot.

    the bat is really cool, but the palm trees throws it off a bit for some reason.

    The beetle is really good, so well done on that one.

    The fox shot is nice, although I do wish that it was facing the camera.

    My favorite of this set is the owl.

    Thanks very much for the feedback, appreciate it. I think the owl is one of the best too, I edited the background to make it B&W so the owl (mostly the eyes) "pop" a bit more.

    The Fruit Bat is from a recent holiday to the Maldives. They just appear out of nowhere and go back into the trees, so it's hard to "plan" a shot. This was about the best I could do for a shot that's vaguely in focus. But I agree, the tree does get in the way (I already removed quite a lot of it).

    The Fox is from the bottom our garden in England. I liked the way he sort of blended in with the golden hour sunlight, and it was like I was a hidden observer watching him hunt :). I did get a head-on shot though, just missed the focus very slightly:

    And one of him pouncing on some unsuspecting animal:

    Thanks again,
    Cheers

    Wow that fox is amazing. Love the first fox shot, but I also like the pouncing action one. You must've had a blast photographing this creature.

    The one who takes a joke only for a joke and seriousness only seriously he and she have got both badly. Grook by Piet Hein in my poor translation.
