Durong Dingo Sanctuary


Recommended Posts

  • 1 month later...

Have been busy and time behind the lens and especially on forums has been limited.

I was back up at the Dingo Sanctuary with a mate helping with some construction (concreting in 44deg heat is hard work it turns out haha).

Zahra Chamberlain was actually on TV again Sunday morning while I was up there. https://au.tv.yahoo.com/sunrise/video/watch/25528270/protecting-sisters-murderer/

Got a few more shots.

Eli letting them know who's boss in the enclosure. Never any 'snapping' just mouthing, interesting to watch the differences vs domestic dogs. With people a large percentage of domestic dogs could perhaps learn a thing or two, they are more gentle, precise and well mannered than many surprisingly, despite being so cautious an wary of us.

Krislin, haha yeah they can put on some good poses. Zahra, the white alpine pup (now about 6 months old) can't get enough of playing with camera gear. Neoprene wrist straps make good tug toys it seems haha.

Teekay, all the shooting info (EXIF) is on the Flickr site if you click on the pics, but the camera is FujiFilm X-T1 (apsc mirrorless) and the lens on all of the last batch of pics is the 35mm 1.4 . The earlier shots also use the Zeiss 12mm 2.8 and the cheap 50-230mm slow lens I have too in a few of them.

As my post in the other general pics thread, I've had no camera for a while, but no it's back, so is my interest, so I'm trolling forums again! haha.

A couple more pics from my last visit for those who haven't likely already seen a while ago on Flickr. Didn't take many pics, was too busy working on stuff.

Haha yeah it's a bit of a novelty with Eli (that Dingo) . I see your point though..

I'd be more confident feeding them than many peoples pets though, exponentially more precise in their movement and actions and far more gentle and careful. I guess it shows the lack of spacial awareness that many peoples pets have is man made haha.
