Thanks for inviting me to join!
This is one of my favorites, from a trip to Costa Rica a few years back.
This tiny little hummingbird really looked straight at me and posed for the shot :-) !

This is my neighbor's cat playing with a feather. I was surprised at how well the shot worked out, considering I was holding the feather with one hand and my camera with the other...
Sadly, she died a few years ago at a ripe old age, but she was always making 'social calls' with us, a very sweet cat.

I had my first music fotoshoot with my new camera (60D) last weekend, putting the low-light capabilities to the test...
I'm happy with the results!

The band is Xclusive, a local band for which I've done several fotoshoots in the last few years.

I've treated myself to an upgrade to a new body (60D).
Very happy with the first results.
Focusing macroshots with liveview is just great...

Meet +Will Nicholls, a young wildlife photographer from the UK.
He's new on G+ and I really like his work. Not only does he have some wonderful wildlife photos, he has also created a very good documentary video on wildlife in Northumberland.

I've been saving this one for #MonochromeMonday, curated by +siddarth pandit .
On a trip through Borneo last year, we visited a few days with an Iban tribe.
These people live in longhouses in the middle of the jungle, hours of boat-travel by river from 'civilization'.
Even though only our local guide spoke English, they were very hospitable, friendly and fairly easy to make contact with.
I made a deal with our travel guide, to make prints of several photos I made of the people there and take them with her the next time she visited them.
They were very happy with the photos, apparently not many of the tourists manage to actually get prints back to their models...

Monitor lizards fighting
Last year on a trip to Borneo, I watched a big group of monitor lizards fighting over food. As much as I liked the iguanas in Costa Rica, these monitor lizards were scary! As you can see, they were pretty aggressive, the poor guy in the middle really didn't have a good day.
I was glad to have a telelens and someone to watch my back, because these guys weren't playing nice!
