While travelling through southern Brazil in May and June I took 5,164 exposures. After selecting the best, I uploaded 157 to my galleries.
That’s a 3% keep rate. I did about the same in Australia in December, netting 300 from 10,000 captures. For every one photograph in my galleries, then, more than 30 end in the bin. I’m not sure this is good or bad; it just is. Half the rejects are for obvious focus or exposure problems, the others don’t make the cut for a variety of other reasons.
Anyway. Have a look at the new material:

I’ll be singling out some of the more interesting natural history stories for blog entries in the coming weeks.
