A Walk In The (Kings) Park

On Sunday last weekend I went for a walkies through Kings Park.

Kings Park is notorious in Perth for many awesome shots OF Perth, as you can see with this photo...



But it's also notorious for its park lands...



... and it's flora...




(a flower in lingerie??)



But perhaps the biggest test of the 40D was seeing how good the 1/8000th shutter speed was and I was able to test that on some bees on a eucalyptus tree (note the bees' wings)...


(1/8000 shutter speed)


(1/2000 shutter speed - see the difference?)

If there's one thing I'm loving about the 40D after taking a hike through Kings Park last weekend it would have to be the 1/8000 shutter speed and the 6.5fps when shooting wildlife!

Between the bees and the butterfly photos above the butterfly photo was the hardest to catch as the butterfly was quite random when it opened it wings, but thankfully with the 40D's 6.5fps I was able to let rip and catch one decent shot. I'd hate to think of how difficult it would've been with anything less.
