    Hope you don’t mind me posting these photographs here. I just see that you have a photograph section and I really enjoy photography and just wanted to share some of my photographs with the website. If this is not allowed please remove. Hope you enjoy the pics.

    WOW Dean! Those are some really spectacular photographs! You said that you took them?

    Can you please elaborate on what phtographic equipment you use? It seems that photography is also a big 2nd hobby for most marine reefkeepers! ;)

    Thank you for the excellent comments, it is greatly appreciated. The camera was a Canon 1D mark2 with a Canon 300mm L series lens. Photography was my first hobby and still love photograph. I only have really big lens at the moment for wildlife photograph and a small lens which in the macro lens. All my equipment in canon. The photograph of the bearded vulture was also with the Canon 1D mark 2 and a 600mm L series lens in a hide at Giants Castle in KZN. The fish eagles where photograph in Botswana on the Okavango Delta.
    With regards to photography my take I am just waiting a a lens to arrive to photograph it. A wide angle lens. Should be able to post pics of my tank within next week. I have taken a photograph of one of my fish and he go’s by the name Nemo. This is his pic.

    Those are some of the best wildlife photos I've ever seen. You are an absolute master in your field. I look forward to learning lots from you. The frame around the pictures does so much for the presentation. How do you do that? I'd really love to try it on some of my snap-shots.
