The Dairy Farm Discoveries
#1 Beautiful morning sun cutting through the mist. I was using my 180mm lens, had to run very far to capture this. lol
#2 Common sun skink (Eutropis multifasciatus) sunbathing on a dead leaf. Thanks to Tim for pointing this out to me!
#3 Shimmery skin and pointed mouth, might mistake it for a snake at some angles
#4 It’s looking at me!!! Yes that’s my flashes in the reflection.
#5 The dude stood up to pose as I switched to the other side against the sunlight
#6 Weevil, shot with Raynox DCR250 attached
#7 Realized that my flash was too far to the front and can’t fill the weevil’s face when I went too close, but this looks like a studio shot.. hahahahaha
#8 Ok I shifted back a little to capture more of the cute little fella
#9 Can’t get enough of these portraits.. lol
#10 And the closest I could go to reveal whatever pimples he might have
#11 Side view of the fatty weevil
#12 Finally got pissed with me and flew off!!
#13 Found another weevil on a tree trunk!
#14 Perched up on a branch
#15 Okok, final weevil pic! 😛
#16 Found these 2 very cute beetles running around the same tree trunk, and kinda placed branches around and guided them to stand side by side for a cute couple shot
#17 But… they decided to do more! Took a few shots and merged them together to form this animation.
#18 Initial shot when they got together
#19 And they got a bit rough
#20 The female got a bit impatient and started running around again, while the male just clung on for his dear life!
