The Eagles Eye

THE EAGLE’S EYE Ears that can hear the breaking of a day. Eyes that can see a shadow as it shifts across an empty sky. Energy drawn from the dark recesses of the earth, held in reserve for every waking moment, waiting for the need to feel the fear, to flee to stay alive, a […]

Australian Mammals – a personal connection

Charles Lamb, an English essayist, humorously suggested in the early 1800s that the newly discovered kangaroo’s short forelimbs were useful for picking pockets. It was satire, of course, a comment on Australia’s convict population, but it was quickly pounced upon by acclaimed naturalist George Bennett. He wrote that being able to pick pockets was very […]

Australian Parrots

More than 330 parrot species inhabit our planet, and Australia is home to about 56 of them. In fact, this continent’s abundance of these birds led mapmakers of the 1500s to annotate the coast of a great southern land with Psittacorum Regio — “The Region of Parrots” — as reported by Portuguese sailing expeditions.

Gliding Possums and their Close Relatives

“When I joined the Queensland National Parks and Wildlife Service (QNPWS) as a photographer in 1975, my first assignment was to photograph the Herbert River Ringtail possum. The newly formed department had chosen the animal as their logo and required photographs.  It was my very first land-based photographic assignment, having spent the previous years exclusively […]

Celebrate the Dingo – our top predator

If any animal now has a hard time living side by side with us, then it is the dingo. I regard this naturally lean dog, which was introduced to our isolated continent more than 3000 years ago, as a gift to the natural world. My experience with these animals has always been entirely positive, but […]
