400 f/4 DO + 1.4 TC

Lousy result. Here, we have light sources all over the place, there was haze/clouds/wife.... that shot had to be aggressively sharpened just to look pass-a-ble, and that's cropped to about half the frame.

I think that there is now a Poll Fairy! Look at the results! They're taking over like cane toads in Australia! Aaaah... Save yourselves!!!

(I may be overreacting, but I don't think so... I keep hearing this menacing theme song in the background. Da dum, da dum, da dum...)  :p

Hey, careful, we Queenslanders are affectionately known as Cane Toads - hmm, I guess you could say we are taking over the country because we generally win the State of Origin rugby league series hehe

^^ There's a Queensland? (LOL) -- Why do they call you Cane Toads?

What do you call the people AUS?

Queenslanders are known as Banana Benders, or Cane Toads. The cane toad name came because in 1935 some bright spark decided to import them so they could keep the Queensland sugar cane beetle under control (they eat them). It failed and now the toads are out of control.

New South Wales people are called Cockroaches - because they are.

Victorians are called Mexicans, because they are south of the border.

Tasmanians are called 2 headers, because we reckon they are all inbreds down there, it is a common joke that you can see the scar on most Tasmanians where the 2nd head has been cut off haha and like some parts of the U.S. you walk faster when you hear banjo music ;)

South Autralians are Crow Eaters - that is because some of the early settlers over there used to refer to crows as "Mount Barker Pheasants" and they used to eat them (erk)

West Australians are known as Sand Gropers.

Northern Territory they are called Territorians.

Those in our nations capital, well, it is where all the politicians go so it is full of hot air, empty promises and bulldust. It is also the porn capital of Australia, there is quite a bit or irony in that I reckon, because the politicians certainly f&%k the lot of us!

Well, what we have in common is that the Brits didn't want us. Last laugh, I suppose!

I think at the time the feeling was mutual. But you guys were a prison colony, and we got thrown out because the Puritans were too religious for England. When you think about it, those things overlap, but not intentionally.

You were too religious and we were all crooks and thieves, talk about opposites. We still swear allegiance to the crown. The Labor Party (who is currently in government) tries to bring up the republic debate every so often so we can finally break away. Trouble is the way the clowns squander our tax money and with all the banana benders living up here in Queensland you could say we’d have to be a banana republic haha

Funny, everyone always makes that comparison with my username as well (sadistic little creatures, aren't they?).

Is it just me or are the people from the Northern Territory getting off easy on the nickname front?

Naw, they are too big and too lunatic to argue with. Some go off their rockers in the heat. Here is a funny thing that was written about a bloke moving to Alice Springs once, it is an oldy, but still a goodie

"August 31st

Just got transferred with work into our new home in Alice Springs!! Now this is a city that knows how to live!! Beautiful sunny days and warm balmy evenings. What a place! I watched the sunset from a deck chair on the veranda It was beautiful. I've finally found my home. I love it here.

September 13th:

Really heating up. Got to 35 today. Not a problem. Live in an air-conditioned home, drive an air-conditioned car. What a leisure to see the sun everyday like his. I'm turning into a sun worshiper.

September 30th:

Had the backyard landscaped with tropical plants today. Lots of palms and rocks. What a breeze to maintain. No more mowing lawn for me. Another scorcher today, but I love it here.

October 10th

The temperature hasn't been below 35 all week. How do people get used to this kind of heat? At least today it's kind of windy though. But getting used to the heat is taking longer than I expected.

October 15th:

Fell asleep by the pool. Got 3rd degree burns over 60% of my body. Missed 3 days of work. What a dumb thing to do. I learned my lesson though. Got to respect the ol' sun in a climate like this.

October 20th:

I missed Kitty (our cat) sneaking into the car when I left this morning. By the time I got to the hot car for lunch, Kitty had died and swollen up to the size of a shopping bag and stank up the $3,000 leather upholstery. I told the kids that she ran away. The car now smells like Wiskettes and cat ****. I learned my lesson though. No more pets in this heat.

October 25th:

The wind sucks. It feels like a giant ****in blow dryer!! And it's hot as hell. The home air-conditioner is on the blink and the AC repairman charged $200 just to drive over and tell me he needed to order parts.

October 30th:

Been sleeping outside by the pool for 3 nights now. Bloody $300,000 house and we can't even go inside. Why did I ever come here?

November 4th:

It's 38 degrees. Finally got the ol' air-conditioner fixed today. It cost $500 and gets the temperature down to 25, but the bloody humidity makes the house feel like it's about 30. Stupid repairman. I hate this stupid ****in place.

November 8th:

If another wise arse cracks, "Hot enough for you today?" I'm going to ****in throttle him. ****in heat! By the time I get to work the car's radiator was boiling over, my clothes are soakin ****in wet, and I smell like baked cat!!

November 9th:

Tried to run some messages after work. Wore shorts, and sat on the black leather seats in the ol' car. I thought my ****in arse was on fire. I lost 2 layers of flesh and all the hair on the back of my legs and my ****in arse. Now my car smells like burnt hair, fried arse, and baked cat.

November 10th:

The weather report might as well be a ****in recording. Hot and sunny. Hot and sunny. Hot and ****in sunny. It's been too hot to do anything for 2 damn months and the weatherman says it might really warm up next week. Doesn't it ever rain in this damn ****in place? Water rationing will be next, so my $2,000 worth of palms just might dry up and blow into the ****in pool. Even the
palms can't live in this ****in heat.

November 14th:

Welcome to HELL!!! Temperature got to 41 today. Now the air-conditioner's gone in my car. The repairman came to fix it and said, "Hot enough for you today?" My wife had to spend the $2,500 mortgage payment to bail my arse out of jail for assulting the stupid ****er. **** Alice Springs! What kind of a sick demented ****in idiot would want to live here?

December 1st:

WHAT????? This is the first day of Summer???? You are ****in kiddin

I just spit coffee on my monitor. Big laugh!

But that raises the question: What do you call Mexicans?

Too funny! I've never lived in that kind of heat, but I have lived in that kind of cold (-70°F/-57°C windchills, -38°F/-39°C actual temperatures).
