    Sensational photos and reports. Those gecko photos are brilliant.
    I love the bearded dragon shot with the wide angle lens too. You must of just about been keaning on his nose to take that!!!
    What size lens did you use for the wedge tailed eagle photos?

    70-200mm at the long end with a 2x teleconverter (so an effective focal length of 400mm). I was leaning out of the car window with my camera on a monopod. Then I had to crop the photo right down. They're really wary birds and we just couldn't get close to them.

    Thanks Stewart. I use to have a 70-200F2.8 with a 2 times converter and it was an awesome set-up. Unfortunately i had to sell it when i lost my job a few years ago.
    I now have a 70-200 F4L which is a great little lens on its own, but no good with a converter.
    Anyhow, i seem to end up with the compact all the time these days while my wife uses the DSLR!!LOL

    Is that the Canon one? Canon also have the very nice 100-400mm L series lens, something lacking in Nikon's range. Nikon do an 80-400, but it's slow and clunky. I opted for the 70-200 with the teleconverter. I think the results are better.

    Well, we saw Cyclodomorphus venustus. I don't think the Morney Plain has anything else to offer, so I'm not sure if it'd be worth going back out there.

    Im sure it would be worth going out there just to see that particular species :D Anywhere where there are herps and birds to be seen is worth going to.
