An Australian magpie (Cracticus tibicen) slurping up a worm in the Grampians, Victoria. Before this photo I’d never really watched a magpie hunt before. It reminded me a lot of a fox hunting mice hidden under snow - the magpie would stop, listen, then spear the soft ground with its beak, more often than not coming up with a worm. Very cool.

Australia has some of the worlds most incredible beaches, this isolated bay near Cape Arid is no exception.

Statue Mofos, ep5 - The Conjuring of the Beady-Eyed Dog. •

Awash with the scarlet glow of the inverted cross, Lucifer the canine ponders whether or not to dig up that inverted bone he buried, or if that in itself requires too much exorcise.

Lake Mountain Summit Loop |
Went hiking expecting patchy snow, but pleasantly ended up walking through thick snow! Came back with ice filled shoes and very cold feet!

White-faced Heron sporting a matching hairstyle as me in negative temperatures at Leslie Dam, Warwick.
I left home at 4.30am Thursday morning to drive around the Southern Downs in Queensland. The land is in desperate need of rain, it wasn't as successful in the bird photography sense as in the past but still managed to take a few photos 📷

One of my favorite things to do is adventuring via 4WD to new beaches, finding a perfect spot, and watching the waves with the love of my life next to me. Bonus points if we remember to bring the wine 🍷

Striated pardalote. A new bird for me and the first bird I saw on my first morning here. I count that as a good start to the trip! (We are visiting family in the Hervey Bay area for the next couple of weeks.) Originally the orange of the fore-supercillum confused me but the local ssp has a strong cinnamon tinge I learned.

But gorgeous little bird and one of a pair that were happy to come close to check me out while I checked them out. —

Buff-banded Rail on Griffiths Island, Port Fairy. I wasn’t happy with the image quality of the other image but it looked fine on my computer.

The Hardhead is always watching you with it’s beady white eye. 👁️

A small (1.5m) Olive Python (Liasis olivaceus) and habitat, Mount Isa, Queensland.

This species is one of the largest in Australia and is certainly capable of consuming a very large food item. There’s a well documented case of a large individual swallowing an adult freshwater crocodile close to where this one was found.

Cradle Mountain has provided me with so many amazing memories, this was one of them. Easily the best airglow I've seen. I've posted a couple of other versions over time, thought a square version was fitting, considering IG originally was a square format 👍🏻

I really love dusk, the way the day just stops and starts turning into night is amazing.

A delicate waterfall in the Maydena area, Tassie - vastly different in character from the urgent and voluminous rushing of the Falls of Iceland. Both kinds of falls are beautiful. Nature's variety is wonderful.

Handsome kookaburra 🇦🇺
It was so fun to photograph this guy in his natural habitat.

Black-winged Petrel.
I may have posted this before sorry, but just going through images from Lord Howe Island to promote the upcoming @flockwildlife tour there in December. .
It’s so cool seeing species that you normally only see over the ocean, flying around the cliffs.
These guys are so fast and erratic in their flight and incredibly challenging to capture. I took quite a lot of shots before getting this one.
Pretty sure you should all come on the trip 😎
.
It’s late here in Sydney so it sure if many people will see this. Thought I’d post anyway as I’ve been pretty slack on Instagram lately. Time gets away and other priorities arise.
Had a afternoon checking out the “Girt By Sea” exhibition with @lerako and @matjoez . Awesome exhibition by @tony.hewitt and Denis Glennon so check it out if you are in Sydney!
.
Wow what a random post. Night everyone!

Magnificently Large!

Thanks @merimbulamarina Simon & GoWhaleWatchingSydney I enjoyed my afternoon off work :)

It always has to be about the little things. And sometimes it’s nice to put the camera down and be in the moment, never forget to enjoy the things you capture.

Just a few of the cockatoos ripping apart our tree. Couldn't fit the other ten birds in the photo!

It is unfortunate that we rarely get Fairy-wrens near our home in Cairns, they are a group I've grown to love coming from further south. This little guy, just starting to moult into his eclipse plumage, was a nice surprise last winter. He hung around close to home for a few months, and I did manage to see him earlier this year with his little harem, but just the once.

I am in #Albany (southern #westernaustralia ) for a couple of nights on a family visit so I thought it a good time to post one of my favourite shots from last time I was here.
.
.
This is a Red-winged #Fairywren (Malurus elegans) in a paperbark. I love the contrast in the twigs of the trees. I specifically waited for a bird to land in these kind of branches - ANY bird! Got lucky when it was this beauty. I never use call playback (contrary to what I have heard some top photographers say recently in Birding forums there IS scientific evidence that it increases stress levels in birds for up to two hours afterwards) or bait birds to get them on branches so I have lots of disappointments but when you get the shot you want it’s so much more rewarding. .
