In Wildlife Photography you need to get the eyes in focus

So I presume that applies to metal beasts and mythical figures....

I went to the Tredegar Vintage & Specialist Card Show today and it was wonderful!

A vast array of vehicles on show and plenty of enthusiasts to talk to (even found someone who may respray our mini cooper)

On the photographic side there were so many people and so many cars around that all of the wider shots I took just looked busy so I put the 11-22 away and put my 50mm macro on and took a closer look

The quiz for the petrol heads on the forum is what are the 2 non-obvious figures...

C&C on the pictures is of course welcome











Regards
Andy

Hi Andy,

Don't have a clue about the last two, but I like the Jaguar leapers, especially no. 2. Such a shame they can't be on modern Jags.

Re: In Wildlife Photography you need to get the eyes in focus

Number 4 is a Desmo cat that was fitted to some jaguars, it was known as "the scolded cat" and was an unofficail mascot that was not sanctioned by Jaguar.

I think?

Is the bird off a Riley?

Excellent pictures though! Looked like an interesting selection of vehicles there.

50 % ... I agree with the 1st, although the car said it was a Panther not a Jaguar I was pleased to see one. I've not seen one before in person

The second was actually an Austin
