Great photos. That poor Dingo seems to have had lean pickings, but a lovely looking animal never the less. :D

Just love that photo of the Western Dragon on a fence post! The colour and texture are amazing.

Here is my contribution for wild life theme :) My lucky shot of the Tawny Frogmouth.

Beautiful photo, curly.
I'm enjoying all the wildlife shots.
The photos are crystal clear, all very professional looking.

In Photoshop duplicate the background layer and make it active.
Apply the zoom blur filter, and then a little more Gaussian blur to this layer. Now add a layer mask, and using a soft edged black brush at about 60% opacity paint on the mask to reveal the sharp original image below. Adjust the opacity of this top layer to suite.
Bingo, - job done.

On the subject of seagulls ,you know what I fancy doing - next time I’m down King Street,I would love to throw a dozen greggs pasties [laced with a strong laxative] on the ground ,then sit well back and stick the camcorder on record.
