Went to visit a local wetland this afternoon. While there, this Pacific Baza was kind enough to smile for the camera.

Blue Skimmer portrait. Not bad results for the 55-250mm kit lens I think.

Yay. Even though they are relatively common, I finally had a chance to shoot a Straw necked Ibis in decent sunlight! I really like the iridescence in their wing plumage.

The behaviour of astrophotographers changes on a full moon. They get moody and start cursing at the bright thing in the sky :)

Business Adviser Maurice Newman has been praised today for his stellar work uncovering that climate change was a hoax perpetrated by the United Nations and the vast majority of the entire scientific community from all around the world.   Newman, who also managed to expose the New World Order as something that actually exists and isn’t just made up by conspiracy theorising weirdos, has been widely praised for his efforts in bringing down what is t...

Straw-necked Ibis. While these are common around here, it's taken me awhile to catch one in nice sunlight to highlight the iridescence in the plumage.

Introduction
Google suggested I write a small introduction here so that people are sure they have found the correct "Teale Britstra" - though I'm not totally convinced that it's necessary (there can't be too many people with this name!) ;-)

I'm currently studying a coursework Master of Science (Astronomy) degree, and also trying to convince people to become more engaged in this fascinating science (and science in general).
