    Purpose of this post... mainly to those that like and get enjoyment out of wildlife photography

    I have a collection of wildlife photos taken from around the Wellington area so I thought that I would share them on here.

    I will put "x" amount of photos on here from time to time... I hope that I don't offend anybody?

    Perhaps this will start a trend with others also posting photos on here from their own areas... Enjoy

    As per the photo above..... Like anywhere in the country sometimes both red and fallow deer co-exist/share the same habitat?

    I drove down the road and saw a pig and took some photos. He obviously knew I was there but he wasn't to worried as he was more interested in his lunch amongst the blackberry.

    I decided to do a technical photographic experiment as a bit of fun to see the difference in file sizing's for displays ...

    The previous above image of the pig photo was taken from a video (frame grab) which has a file size of 280KB (JPG).

    The same pig as in the first posting but has gone back to his lunch. This is a standard photo with metadata being JPG but 6.5MB in file size.... Enjoy

    Do you have a telephoto lens on?
    There is definitely some very nice photos there.
    I'm curious as to whether your stalking in with a medium zoom ( pig) or sitting in cover and zooming in from distance with a much larger lens.

    Hi kruza, a bit late getting back to you however I'm replying to your questions.

    Your questions to me reference telephoto lens stalking sitting in cover etc.

    I have been doing photography for years using 35mm SVHS and DVC tapes.
    I have put up various posts/links to 35mm photography SVHS and DVC tapes. When I get around to it I will put up more photos to those posts.

    The pig photo you asked about was taken on a Panasonic FZ1000 bridge camera as said above this was a frame grab, I never had the correct 4k capable SD card in it at the time.

    Nothing hard in what I do, one just needs a bit of motivation, then I simply get in the car and drive around. It's easy to do wild life photography these days, due to camera technology and the number of animals near the side of the road.

    Some of the above photos are not sharp that is my fault, I have trouble with a filing index and time management?

    I have a chap working for me, I call him my button pusher and he works remotely. He does most of the postings for me as I'm not techno savvy.

    I believe a forum member called bumble foot uses DXO software and a Panasonic FZ1000 which has a built in telephoto lens.... perhaps he will comment on photo sharpness.

    Goats.... As been stated before in the past.... Are they game animals?
    As commonly known farmers keep them for gorse/shrub control etc.

    The above photo, is it a wild goat, no. Its a domestic goat taken on a fence line eating on gorse etc. Why put it up, because I like the photo, he was a nice friendly cheeky goat. How could anyone shoot an animal like this, probably someone's pet and given a lot of enjoyment too. However I have used the words 'Wellington wildlife' because some of his mates are wild.

    Another common Wellington area roadside goat.
