Thought I'd go through and do the same as last year by making a post of my favourite wildlife photos over the last year. While I have still been rather busy over the last year with my PhD, I have been fortunate enough to get out and about a bit more this year to do some photography. I hope you all enjoy the photos below

Awesome photos, Cameron.

Can I ask what sort of lighting/settings you used for night photography? I recently did a spotlighting trip and, while I saw a few interesting critters, my photography was rather awful.

Thanks for that Nero.

For my night shots, and even a couple of the ones I take during the day, I use a yonguno flash with a 20 cm square diffuser attached to it to soften and spread the light out. I also use a flash trigger so that I can position the flash wherever I want depending on the style of shot I'm after. Setting wise, most of my shots are between f 7-11, shutter speed ~1/160-250 and iso ~125-200.

Cheers, Cameron

Thanks for the information. I might give this a go. I was just using either the light from the torch or the standard flash, not sure on the settings, but either way, didn't make for very nice photos.

They are amazing photos! I would expect to see them on National geographic. Beautiful!
