2 of 5 - One Man Band 4 instruments at once - The best of Melbourne Street Performers

This guy can play the Bass drum, High-hat, guitar and harmonica all at once. And he actually makes it sound good. I was very impressed and that is why he is number 2 on my list of favourite Melbourne street performers.

1 of 5 - Awesome ALIEN Street Performer - The best Melbourne Street Performers

I thought that this street performer was very unique and original. I dropped some coins in for his space ship repair fund. I hope he finds his home planet soon! But not too soon because he is very entertaining! This was shot in Melbourne, Australia.

Tiger and Lions

Tigers and Lions

As promised I will continue the Zoo theme for the week. During my visit to the Melbourne zoo I got a few nice pictures of the Lions and Tigers. I had a clear shot of the Tiger, but I had to photograph the Lion through a chain link fence. I think the Pictures still came out pretty good though. I just had to zoom right in and focus and the fence nearly disappeared.

Tigers - Tiger Pictures

This is one of my favourite pictures that I took. He did a pretty good pose for me!

I put these coulagges together just to try something new. I think they look pretty cool. Any advice or feedback?

In this picture I was panning as the Tiger was running, I think it came out pretty good, what do you think?


The Lion was pretty far away and I have a basic zoom lens with no IS so I tried my best to get a good shot of this guy.

Well that is all for now. Let me know what you think of the pictures. Thanks!

Alexander Semin Fight

Alexander semin punches like a sissy little girl!

He must have been raised with 3 older sisters and an over bearing mother. It's a good thing he can score goals! I thought russians were bad but this.... oh man, what an embarrassment!

Meerkats at the Melbourne Zoo

Meerkats at the Melbourne Zoo

Meer Cats, well it is actually spelt Meerkats which I just learned right now, and you probably did too! They are adorable little guys. When I went to the Melbourne Zoo I fell in Love with them! I took a bunch of pictures which I wanted to share.

MeerKats are a small mammal and a member of the Mongoose family.

A Group of Meerkats is called a group, mob, or clan. When I was at the zoo there were a few mobs of Meerkats and there is always one from each mob watching out for danger. The danger in this case was my girlfriend because there were no high-end fashion shops at the zoo, and she was on an angry rampage.

Birds of Prey (Owls, Hawks, and Eagles) are a natural predator of the Meerkat Is dat a Hawk!?....Nope just stupid bird....Hope he dont poop in ma eye!

How Meerkats spot danger.

When a predator is spotted, the meerkat performing as sentry (the lookout guy) gives a warning bark, and other members of the gang will run and hide in one of the many bolt holes they have spread across their territory. After they all scurry and hide the sentry meerkat is the first to reappear from the burrow and search for predators, constantly barking to keep the others underground. If there is no threat, the sentry meerkat stops signaling and the others feel safe to emerge.

I see u hidin in there SNAKE

Some of a Meerkats natural predators include Birds of Prey (like eagles and hawks and owls), Snakes and Jackals


Made Ya Look!

Well that's all for now, hope you enjoyed your meerkat lesson!

Next post: Giant Tortoises make a funny noise when they have sex....and I have the video to prove it!
