Yes...believe they were all focused on the one I was and, he was maybe 25 yards away from us.
Wait...seriously? All those photographers with enormous telephotos were actually all focused on a pika?! Good grief. Just sit down with a sandwich and they’ll come right up to you! Cheaper than a telephoto.

I'd need an armoured personnel carrier to store and cart them around in.
Replace the other shooting device with one of these behemoths :whistling:

I was 110% delighted to get to see wild yellow footed rock wallabies at Arkaroola Wilderness Sanctuary in the northern Flinders Ranges, South Australia. The rock pile has been set up as a feeding station, near to buildings at the settlement, and they are given a specially made nutritional supplement treat, which helped them through times of drought. We were asked to stay within the boundary of the shelter we were in (open sided, not a hide), as they're very skittish, and took off anytime someone moved too much.

This marsupial species became threatened a few decades ago, but with careful conservation, and elimination of wild cats, foxes and dogs, are building in numbers again. I switched to the Sigma 56mm f/1.4, as the sun had gone behind the mountains.

A rabbit in the area maybe? Can’t imagine what else will bring out the big lenses!
It is a well known fox den. Photographers from all over come every year especially after this clip. I have some photos of the kit in the clip. It is a Nat'l Pk so the distance requirement. There are plenty of other dens around so there is no point in me joining the crowds. (see my photos back up the page). FYI the foxes use rabbit burrows. You can see a rabbit to the right of the black fox kit.

That video clip is insane!

This fawn was resting in our front yard this afternoon, and our guard cats alerted me.
I had my EM-1.2 and 75 1.8 nearby, so I grabbed a shot.
A few minutes later I saw the mother nursing her baby, then they walked away.

Photographing grizzly's in a snow storm can be very frustrating. The snow was quite heavy at times and played havoc with the G-9's AF. These shots were of a pair of two year old cubs that were feeding in the timber...mom was further back and I couldn't get any decent shots of her. At times, the snow was very heavy and the bears could not be seen. These were taken as the snow more or less waxed and waned.
