Ailsa’s travel theme this week is birds … one of my favourite photography subjects. I thought I would share some birds from my travels around Australia. Working backwards in time, let’s begin with some birds from Lord Howe Island. I have not included any wading birds here, just land birds and the terns.
In September we were in Far North Queensland, visiting tropical rainforests where the lighting made photography frustrating … but in the hinterland conditions were excellent.
Every now and then I capture some images of birds from west of the Great Dividing Range, for example when I am in Canberra.
and then there are the birds from Northern Australia where we spent two months in the middle of the year. These are just a few of many, I hope you enjoy them.
Everywhere I travel I am looking for birds, and wondering how to photograph them. Sometimes it is best just to watch and leave the camera in the bag!
