    I'll throw in the first submission.

    It's not new, and I wish I had something more recent but I'm proud of this.

    It's literally my first shot ever with a DSLR, technique was non-existent at the time!

    Found this cat outside.. decided to try and take a picture of it without running it off. I was trying to go for the semi-creepy haunted house theme.

    I took this shot in the weekend at Hungry beach, this 4 foot long Goanna raided our lunch boxes when we wandered away for a few minutes.

    I don't if this counts but he's as free as we can allow him to be in the garden! I like the fact that he's a bit out of focus... Most of the time he thinks if he stands still we can't see him.

    Apparently these spiders are visible to the bee but serve to make the flowers more attractive.
