I know most people on here love taking pics of their fish, and there are some stunning pics in the photo gallery, but who also likes taking photo's of things other than fish?

Here are some of mine from the last few weeks...

Nice pics, love the Tiger attack chopper!
A mate of mine served in the ADF, an ARMY para-trooper but was killed in 2005.

Hope you don't mind if I add a few pics to your thread but here is a few of my favourites that I have acess to right now ie not stored somewhere on a memory card :side:

Caught this guy peeking through the bathroom window at me :dry:

thanks for starting this! I love the fireworks, the timing on that must have been quite tricky. That tree as well, with the criss-cross pattern?

The mantis is beautiful, the lighting is so pretty :)

My camera is almost always with me. Not a fancy camera, and I'm not a photographer by any measure, but I like taking pictures.
I have a special soft spot for taking pictures of animals, most of these are from various field trips and/or holidays:

African wild dogs. Close to extinction. Also the worlds most successful hunter.


Pretty little antelope, the size of a fox-terrier


This guy is an enormous elephant bull.


Zebras :) Lovely horsies.


And a giraffe, because without giraffes I would be sad.

This silly squirrel came and drank my tea, which was by my feet under the chair, and then stayed for some pictures :)


I'm also on a mission to take a picture of every single bird species in South Africa... It's a life-long thing, this one. Here are some of my favourite pictures:

This white-eye is a tiny bird, the size of a golf ball


From our honey moon :)


In english, its name is so proper - the pied starling. In Afrikaans, though, we call it what you notice first - the white butt starling!


Sat still for only this one picture, but what a snapshot :)


Recently seen eating seeds from snow-White's hand in the movie Mirror mirror. What a laugh - this is a vicious insect eater.


Eats snails, and sings so prettily. The size of a medium crow.

great thread pictures are all so freaking clear and awesome !!! awesome idea guys!! two thumbs up!!

and nina funny but when I was in middle school I used to be in science olympiad and one of my events was "for the birds" it was identifying birds from their sounds, pictures, and bio's! I was awesome at is I think I took 2nd and 3rd and we were not even supposed to be good because we were a school with black kids and all the rich affluent schools were supposed to smash us!! but it was great but that passion for birds as since changed to fish but I hope to soon get as good with fish as I was with birds !

Those are some fantastic shots of the animals Nina...

As for the tree, it's actually two trees, a Gum tree with a Strangler Fig growing up around it.
Eventually the Gum will die and rot away leaving the fig with a huge hollow center.



I'll try and get a good shot of a hollow one next time I go up the mountain for some bushwalking. some of them you can even climb up the inside... as long as you're not afraid of spiders

wow nice photos makes my talent of nothing show lol and my local area so boring. I would love to see these places for real. Im sure living in africa has its downs but it is so amazing to be that close to nature, same with the rainforest and areas similar it is like living in the realy world as nature intended not like here in UK I mean dont get me wrong I love the animals and nature here but its kind of man made and not real if you get me. But way of what the thread is about Ill load some pics up for you guys :)

I'm living my life, but not necessarily in the right order :)

Ah, thanks for explaining. We get strangler figs here too! It looked almost arranged to me.

I've been pretty lucky, with archaeology fieldwork we spend weeks in the bush, and you get pretty close to animals. Not so nice when it's a leopard sitting there watching you, and you have to start the fire for morning coffee, but really great for pictures :)
I have hundreds of pictures, as a result.
That hornbill (third last picture) is sitting on a mopani tree, if anyone is curious :)

Eddie, I love birdwatching - it's something we as a family have done since tiny kids. My sister grew out of it, but not me :)

Jnet, you must post pictures! I find England such a contradiction. Your countryside and cities are all so romantic looking, misty and old and full of ducks and rivers and boats and parks and oak trees... but then you name them "Shropshire" or "Dumfries", or the mountain "Great Cockup". It sort of ruins the mood a bit :P
