Blue Waxbill- Lunch or trouble

"Baie mooi Leo! Baie skerp met 'n goeie moment vasgevang. Ek hou ook van die weerkaatsing. My enigste punt van kritiek is die plasing in die raam, ek sou graag die sysie nader aan die derde lyn aan die regterkant wou hê met die dooie…"

Pietman Muller replied to Marius van Aardt's discussion I need some advice
"Hi Marius, I fully agree with Nadia in respect to the following: f5.6 - 6.3 works very well and I found over the years f5.6 to be  sort of a sweet spot with many telephoto lenses giving their best results between f5.6 and f8. The most used…"

Lioness at sunrise

"I recommend a panoramic crop (cropping a bit off the top and the bottom),which will emphasise the lioness for greater visual impact."

The Fish Eagle story – part 3

Posted on September 11, 2017 at 17:44 2 Comments

The last two years have been hectic, difficult and extremely busy, but  fortunately two opportunities came up in August to spend time with, and photograph fish eagles. I decided to share some of the shots as well as insights gained from this in this blog. The first opportunity came on the 9th of August while on a business trip to Hectorspruit in Mpumalanga. I made a quick visit to a farm dam to check on a fish eagle that my son in law and I have watched previously. I saw the bird…

As a wildlife and nature photographer one sometimes has to make do with what you are presented with as wild animals cannot be manipulated like studio items. This can very easily lead to despondence and a feeling of hopelessness if things do not go your way. (I am referring to real wildlife not the canned type). This fact does however not mean that a shot cannot be planned or that a photographer cannot go out with a certain idea or project in mind. As is the case…


Photographic study of Spotted eagle owls at the nest - part 3

The Owl story continued – 2013

As a wildlife photographer that is absolutely fascinated by owls, I am fortunate to live in an area where these nocturnal birds are plentiful. I keep a detailed map in my office of all owl pairs in the area and at present I am aware of at least 10 Wood owl-, 7 Spotted eagle owl- and 3 Barn owl pairs in an 8 km radius from my home. Finding owl nests are not that easy, especially Wood owl nests as Wood owls are very secretive, but I am very pleased…


Fish Eagles - the love affair - continued

Posted on April 4, 2013 at 5:30 2 Comments

This year so far were pretty hectic with very little time for photography but I grabbed at the opportunity to spend time over the weekend with the fish eagles at the nearby Nandoni dam. Like the previous occasion we were desperate to get a couple of shots of the lone overwintering Osprey but he is very shy. My friend got one shot at 1000 mm but I did not even try as it was just too far for my trusted 500 mm Sigma.

The fish eagles made up for this loss and we had several…
