Dupacc's Photos not making it into your TR. KNP Aug. '13

Unread postby Dupacc » Thu Aug 15, 2013 3:12 pm

Through various visits to the various Parks in our beautiful country we have had some superb sightings and met some really great people. I have always found it extremely interesting to read Travel Tales from people about what they have seen and have often wondered how many “not so perfect” photos don’t make it onto the forum, perhaps due to a branch or a leaf in the way of making it a perfect photo.

I started this thread so we can share images of what you have seen but did not include in your Travel Tale due to, what you think is, some "imperfection".

This will not be a photographic competition and any images will be welcome.

So if this topic is OK with the Mods, I will start off with this image of a Trrp-Trrrrrrrr. I call it:


Move that twig!!
