I got an eye on you…literally

Canon 70D+Tamron 90mm f2.8. “I got an eye on you!”

 

This chameleon is king of his branch and in full control. It is blending in nicely with the green background. With the Tamron 90mm lens you get a nice blur or bokeh in the background when you use aperture 2.8. It was kind of dark where the chameleon were but with some glimpse of light coming through it makes it a mystical picture.

Don’t want to bug you…

…but it is summer and it is a great time for macro.

Wherever you go you will find a insect, weather you like it or not. The bugs are easier to spot and there are more chances to take those nice macro shots.

I found a nice looking creature when I was out walking. I found a colorful orange/black striped bug called Graphosoma lineatum in Latin. It probably have several names in different languages. It was easy to work with the bug because it was completely still and staring at me. It made a good pose on that stone too. When the bug had enough it just walked away.

Bugging you

Flowers in a macro world

I have posted a lot of articles about Tamron 150-600mm. This time it will be about Tamron 90mm f2.8. I have  used a Canon 70D for this picture. I can really recommend Tamron 90mm 2.8 as a great macro lens. It is also a cheaper alternative to the Canon 100mm macro lens. Tamson 90mm do not have image stabilizer, but I have been able to take really nice pictures even without that. I am using the older model of the 90mm lens. Now there is a newer version which is waterproof.

I love to take macro pictures. It is like being in another world. You can look at a flower and see its beauty, but only if you get really close you can see all the amazing details.

Eremitibis – ever seen anything like this?

Eremitibis

This funny looking creature is a Eremitibis. It is endangered and there are only 220 left in this world. I managed to get a front picture and it really do look funny. It looks like it had a rough day. It is not the most beautiful birds I have seen, but it looks very interesting.

This picture is taken at a focal length of 483mm, f9 and exposure time of 1/500 sec and I used a Canon 70D. You are welcome to comment, if you have any questions.

Pictures with Tamron 150-600mm – part 3

The expression on this Gibbon’s face says it all. He is so bored. I wanted to make it in sepia to show more loneliness. I kept little color in the picture to give it little effect. The photo was taken through a window but with the Tamron 150-600mm it luckily did not give any reflections or disturbance in the photo. This picture is taken at a focal length of 552mm, f10 and exposure time of 1/60 sec and I used a Canon 70D.

 

This yellow gibbon is showing off his skill when he is easily and gracefully balancing on a rope. So human like moves. This picture is taken at a focal length of 329 mm, it was raining and the light was not the best. It was cloudy and gloomy. Thanks to his yellowish fur the Gibbon brightens up the picture. Even is this picture I was using Canon 70D, a great camera for wildlife photography.

 

If you have any questions about the Tamron 150-600mm just let me know and I will answer your questions.

Pictures with Tamron 150-600mm – part 2

Orangutan mom and baby

I like to take pictures of monkeys because they show a lot of personality. Many gestures and expressions are the same as the humans. The picture above is one of them. The Orangutan mom and her baby is having a moment, bonding time with each other. It looks so effortless and peaceful. This picture is taken indoors and through a thick window, still the Canon 70D and Tamron 150-600mm lens manage to capture the moment.  This picture is taken handheld.

Orangutan thinking a lot

Orangutan male is looking different from the female. It is often bigger and the face looks different as well. This picture above was taken from about 20 meters away. With the Tamron zoom lens you will be able to come pretty close and you will get more natural pictures since you do not have to disturb the animal when you stand further away. This picture is taken handheld.

Wolf taken with Tamron 150-600mm

Today’s picture is of a wolf. It is taken with Canon 70D and Tamron 150-600mm. The wolf was kind of far away from me when I took this shot. Although with the Tamron 150-600mm the distance to a object is never to far away because of the ultra zoom lens. It allows you to come very close  to the animals without disturbing them.
