In the Jungle, the mighty jungle ....................

Best on Black

I haven't been on here for a while, I have taken some photos but not got round to editing or uploading, also loads of emails to get through.

Life has its up and downs at moment.

My thoughts and prayers are with the families who have lost loved ones in the Sydney Siege.

Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting, it is always appreciated.
Great shot!

Fabulous shot, good to have you back again. Hope all is well with you.

Such a sad day in Australia today. My kids and I were on the receiving end of a terrorist attack 28 years ago (not in Australia I might add), so the last 24 hours has brought back just how many evil people there are in the world.

@onewing Babs I couldn't believe it yesterday it just seemed so unreal and now I have just seen on the news that a school in Pakistan has been stormed by the Taliban and 126b are dead. Gosh I am sorry to hear about your experience, I can't imagine what that must have been like for you.

I have been struggling to get on here, Harriet has a new doctor and we are finding out lots of underlying problems to her illness and she is struggling quite a bit with lots of medication but at least we have a doctor who believes her now. A little ray of sunshine here at the moment is that our oldest daughter has arrived last week from the UK and is with us for just over a month.

Great shot Elaine. I didn't know that the siege was over. How sad that those innocent people got killed. You just don't expect things like that to happen in Oz. Happy to hear that there may be some good news regarding Harriet's medication and health.

Hi Elaine, when you have time (I can see that life is hard.) can you let me know what you thnk of your camera in comparison to the 400D. I have the 400 and have not noticed anyone else with it. I love it but have vaguely thought of upgrading... there are some advantages I am sure but I don't want to do it just because it is a later camera. What, to you, are the real benefits? Is there a difference in the quality or is it that the camera offers more in-camera gadgetry?When you have a moment that would be good to hear. Superb photo by the way.I have just been having a nosy through your album. :-)

@elaine55 Good to hear that Harriet has a new doctor now and maybe things will begin to look up for you all. How lovely that your other daughter will be here for Christmas.
We are having a non Christmas this year. the last couple of years have been pretty horrendous from time to time and we need some quiet time this year. We will visit Deb and the grandchildren in the New Year. Hope you have a lovely Christmas.

@callymazoo Hi Cally, my other camera is a 400D and I think it's a great camera. I changed to a 7D because of the quick shutter speed as I wanted it for shooting birds, however my kit lens is not quick enough. I love the 7D but as this is a semi-pro camera it doesn't have any of those auto features you have on the 400D. On the Canon cameras the L series lenses are very sharp but they are expensive and at present I can't afford them so I make do. Over here Canon have a group which I belong to called the Canon Collective and I am able to use their lenses if I am on an outing with them so it is great to try them out. If you upgrade to a full frame camera like the 5 or 6D you won't be able to use any of the EOS lenses are they only work on cropped sensors. My SIL has recently bought a 70D and splashed out on an L series lens and she loves them both and it also has quite a few features. My oldest daughter used my 400D yesterday at the zoo and she took some fab photos. Best of luck in what you decide and hope that is a help to you, if you want any more info please don't hesitate to contact me.

@callymazoo I should have said with the newer cameras you do get a higher ISO for low light photography.

@elaine55 thank you for thatcelaine. I am getting the IS L f2.8 macro for Xmas so just as well I stay with the 400D then as I don't want redundant expensive lenses. I have the 70 -300 zoom too. Have had for years. I would like a faster shitter speed and put my bad bird in flight photos gown to my lack of skill, not thinking it may be due to a slower camera. So a 70D will takey lens but not a 7D? All very confusing. I had better not upgrade yet as I am already being spoilt this year. :-)

I've been thinking of you and just realized you've been posting but I haven't seen anything. I'm glad to hear that your daughter is getting some good medical care from someone who believes in her. And what a joy to have both daughters with you for the holidays! As always, your photograph is impressive. What an animal and what a fantastic position/pose! Hoping your holiday season is a good one.
