Wildlife in the Canberra suburbs. I live across from a pond used to protect the Murrumbidgee from storm water pollution. It proves you don't need to go to exotic locations and sit in hides for days with 600mm lenses to get good wildlife images. I took these shots over 3 weeks on about 7 hourish walks around Stranger pond. These all have wings but other Aussie animals are there too. Some shots were only 100-150 meters from my front door; even the shots of the Egret catching the carp.
