A few new images

June 28, 2014

Hi guys,


my life’s been still crazy busy, so I didn’t have much time for bird photography. I manage one long weekend away with y girlfriend and got two new species on one day, which was pretty cool. Besides that I have spent a few hours trying to photography a few common species in my backyard.

I always enjoy the challenge of trying to create a unique image of a common species.

Here are some of the images. I will upload all image to my website soon.


Little Wattlebird (Anthochaera chrysoptera) on one of his favourite plants, a flowering banksia. Both image were taken within minutes of each other. You can see how a slight change in the light changes the scene dramatically. The first image had a bit of sunshine on the background, whereas the second image of pretty evenly lit.




Another bird I got on my short holiday was this weird looking White-winged Chough (Corcorax melanorhamphos). Seeing a flock of these birds is always a bit of a surreal experience, as they always making quite weird noises.



The following two images were taken in my backyard. It’s quite ironic that I had to come al the way to Australia to finally get a good Tree Sparrow ((Passer montanus) image 🙂


Spotted Dove (Spilopelia chinensis) on a fall coloured branch

And because I love them so much another Gang Gang Cockatoo (Callocephalon fimbriatum) at the end…



Little Update

June 6, 2014

It’s winter time in Melbourne and thus my job gets a bit more quiet and I finally find some more time to edit a few images from my archive.

Eventually I want to catch up with all files, so that the taxonomic list on my website will be complete. There are already almost 2500 images online, so it’s worth it to have a little look HERE

The update with 35 new images can be found HERE
