More Tulips

I spent some time making timelapses at the gardens a few weeks ago… This was me filling in time while I waited 🙂

I have been hanging out at the Wellington Botanical Gardens a bit lately… The spring festival is in full swing and lets just say that its a target rich environment for all sorts of different photography…

Giraffe Sequence

Was talking to someone the other day about taking images of giraffes and he was complaining about not being able to get a close shot even though he was using a 300mm lens… So I was at the zoo the other day and after I shot a couple of shots on the Rollei (which I still have to develop) I threw a 50mm lens onto the D70s to see what I could get…

Lets just say I got a bit of a surprise when he came up and tried to eat my camera strap 🙂

I had to stop shooting because he came too close and was closer than the minimum focusing range of the lens…
