Pink Grey and Wild


Striking pink and pale grey suit this jovial character.

A sumptuous sunflower seed is pure indulgence for the bird who seems to speak a trilled language.

The messiness of the order tumbles from a worked beak.

A smile ignites in his eye and enlightens a cheeky personality as the burst of seed is enough to make this bird wild.

Fine Art Osprey


The Osprey would certainly be my favourite bird to photograph because they have so much character.

This Osprey was happy to pose for me on my last trip to Geraldton with Shawn Haywood. The sun shone brightly so I was able to get the amazing catch light in its eye.  I used about 5 images of trees, clouds and an oil tank to create this fine art portrait. Enjoy.

Endangered – Carnaby’s Black Cockatoo


Western Australia is truly an amazing place. I am very fortunate to be able to travel this great state and see many places and experience many rare sites. The Carnaby’s Black Cockatoo is one of those birds that stops you in your tracks!  Its truly a rare beautiful site when you see one of the birds these days.

I wanted to photograph this bird and bring the endangered cockatoo to everyone’s attention. I know of a few places where these birds gather in large numbers of 200 or more and for most locals these birds are considered pests but for the rest of the world these birds are extremely rare as they can only be found in parts of Western Australia.

Please enjoy the beauty of this creature and pay close attention to the environment around you next time you are outdoors….lets all preserve our wildlife for the next generation.

Splendid Fairy Wren


This Splendid Fairy Wren or more commonly known as the Blue Wren would have to be one of the most spectacular birds in Australia.

Photographing these small birds can be quite challenging  A steady hand, long lens and quick focus certainly help. I think all my bucket practice certainly came in handy!

Have you ever photographed one of these birds before? I would be interested to see your photos so be sure to drop a link to any of your images below.
