Shots of the Common Waxbill (Estrilda astrild), adult and juveniles, spotted feeding at Kranji Marshes, Singapore, on 23 May 2021. They weren't too concerned about me getting close to take these shots.
The Common Waxbill is native to south of the Sahara, Africa. They were probably introduced here via the bird trade.

Sunsets on south part of my island! This little island is called shark Island and is called this way because of blacktip sharks that are often found there.
Rainy season is starting on my little island. These little guys are popping up everywhere!
They are surprisingly chill - though it's often their own demise as they tend to chill at the wrong places like roads 😬
Bluespotted Ribbontail Ray!
Most common ray in the gulf of Thailand. Nevertheless it's adorable and always pleasant to see because of those exotic blue spots.
During the day they hide under the rocks like these and at nights they go for the shallows to hunt for all sorts of small critters in groups!
Despite having a sharp, venomous barb they are super shy and will squiggle away quickly if you get too close!
Fun fact: the diving sign for stingrays is 🖕
If you come on to it from behind all you can see is little eyes poking out from the shell 😆
Hermit Crab Chilling Next to some anemone.
Learning more about #darktable and the camera. Seems like flash is enough to capture some nice shots in depths of 20 meters or so if the water is quite clear - especially for close ups!
I'm rather new to diving so I'm just enjoying the activity itself and finding critters to take photos off while my girl has hundreds of dives so the camera in hands is a good refresher for her! 😁
I ordered a underwater housing for my camera from aliexpress a month ago. They kept providing me with fake tracking codes 4 times in a row for a month until finally they shipped it (?) 🤣
This is the first time I see this sort of "scam" - points for creativity I guess 😅
Inb4 comments that I should invest into proper hausing - there really aren't any options in my country and afaik that's a good one there.
Hey guys, anyone knows any good resources how to take better female portraits and photos in general? My girlfriend says I'm a bad human photographer... and she might be right 😅
Would love to get there at some point, as soon as you get rid of child murdering clowns that is😅
My morning reading spot has some great #photo opportunities. Maybe I'll take my dslr there next time 🤔
