How old was he?
Great close up & portrait with great light, colors, details & sharpness & what a sad news about them. I'm really sorry.

Well captured Janice. Excellent colour and definition and interesting notes. Steve Irwan the crocodile hunter had one in his zoo. I say had because it died recently. It was supposedly one captured ny Charles Darwin and reputed to be around 170 years old. TFS,
Many thanks for your comment on
Cliff Grounds IV
They are Tasmanian Tree Ferns - Dicksonia Antarctica
Beautiful, prehistoric looking creatures they are, Janice... Excellent capture, I love the compo. It's quite obvious he/she had been eating recently ;o)).
Btw, how is your 300D ?

This guy has been eating like a pig
his face is full of grass
Very nice photo
Best regards sotirios
Superb POV Janice . Did you crawl on the ground to get this one ? Another great close-up. Narrow DOF perfectly focused on her face. And the best , she is looking at you with a smile.
