I have been enjoying photographing the Lemurs at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary. They live in a very large aviary enclosure with lots of trees to explore. I decided to “employ” one of them to photography our budgies. Snowy is a bit coy in front of the camera as you can see while Ralphie can take it or leave it.
I like to photograph the local birdlife and landscapes in our region. I was brought up on a diet of blackbirds and robins back in the UK, but now I regularly see amazing birds like the colourful rainbow lorikeet, a not too distant cousin to the budgies above. The Gold Coast city is a long coastal strip of over 50km of beautiful beaches, backed by a sub-tropical rainforest in the hinterland. Drive less than 30 minutes to find the green behind the gold.
