Comments - This was our first visit to Healesville Sanctuary (Zoos Victoria) for many years. On this beautiful spring day we managed to cover just part of the sanctuary with the intention to revisit again at a later date to photograph other animals and bird not covered at this particular visit. Photographing them was certainly a challenge for me! Photograph featuring Nankeen Kestrel Falcon! #Splendid #Nature #Wondrous #Care

 

 

 

INTRODUCTION

This was my hubby and my first visit to Healesville Sanctuary (Zoos Victoria) for many years.  It is located at Healesville in rural Victoria, Australia. The zoo specialises in the breeding of native Australian animals. On this beautiful spring day – we managed to cover just part of the sanctuary with the intention to revisit again at a later date to photograph other animals and birds not covered at this particular visit. Photographing these beautiful and curious creatures was certainly a challenge for me! 

 

 

 

PHOTOGRAPHY EQUIPMENT USED

During this Zoo photography exercise – I used a compact system camera, a Sony A7 Mark II – Full Frame with a Sony A FE24-240mm F3.5-6.3 OSS Lens. For these photographs I used the camera hand-held while desperately trying to work out suitable camera settings for fast moving creatures! I also used my Apple iPhone 8 Plus mobile phone for quick spontaneous photographs and gain GPS location readings.

THE PHOTOGRAPHS

On my return home, I downloaded all the photographs into Adobe Lightroom Classic CC.  I developed a small selection of photographs During the process of developing them I was able to see what I needed to address during my next photographic adventure.   Please find both above and below, the best of what I took during this photography adventure!

 

 

 

CONCLUSION

Being out-and-about experiencing the natural wonders of the world and the creatures it inhabits – really does rejuvenate the body and soul.  Photography is just another way to improve one’s sense of wellbeing and at the same time – be creative!
