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.
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.
Until Next Time – Happy Shooting (That’s photographing to the non photographer!)
