    Post Your Best Nature Shots!



    Took some inspiration from the other "Post Your Best ****!" threads and decided to create one for nature. I'm a big fan of viewing and taking nature photos. I'm talking about wild animals, flowers, greenery, landscapes, etc.


    So show off your best!





    I'll start off with one, and post another once in a while to bump the thread.





    Canon Rebel XT 350D, 1/250 second, F/6.3, 200mm, ISO400

    Haha, no safari. It was taken at the National Zoo here in D.C. back in August. They just have a intresting area for the lions/tigers, and this fellow happened to be in a place that I framed perfectly. He wasn't still at all, the bugger kept walking around.


    I'll try and find a shot of the whole area to show what i'm talking about.

    Hopefully this works....





    The banana slug wasn't actually attacking the scorpion. I stepped on that scorpion the day before. The banana slug just came back for cleanup.


    But I like to imagine a battle!


    Safari in San Diego, one of the natives said something offensive to another local....





    Caught this dude taking a bath in my sink





    The infamous and elusive refuse-seeking Slobber Bear





    Caught the Tiger Monkey with the old "Hey, here's a mirror" trick...

    Thanks Colin. It's my favorite Toad. So very ugly but smug looking. Sometimes he sits in just the right spot to take a cool picture. But if you're not careful he will run off and hide.

    Oh and Alex: That is some seriously wicked light. Amazing! Here's a landscape I did this week. I am not happy with it to be honest. I've been doing these experiments to try and photograph and postprocess landscapes here in the area to get a Dutch painting feel but I am failing.

    Thanks, Madison, glad you like it! My only regret is that I used such a large aperture. It was taken before I really understood the DOF aspect of aperture control...As a result the image is a little soft for my taste.
