Koala with Baby Phascolarctos cinereus
High in a gum tree a female carries her offspring on her back even though it is almost ready for independence. Koalas are solitary animals and are rarely seen together in the same tree.


Malleefowl Leipoa ocellata
A female malleefowl tried each day when she came in to remove a dead branch from the rim of her nest. The male, in the background, with his grey chest, worked tirelessly on temperature control by opening and closing the mound. He used more and more hot sand to maintain the temperature as the summer progressed and the fermenting vegetable matter in the mound cooled.


Pearson-Island Rock-wallaby Petrogale pearsoni
This is a prelude to a fight for survival. Water beneath this rock holds the key to the survival of these beautiful creatures. After this greeting the larger, more dominant wallaby drove the smaller one away. Limited water supplies and survival of the strongest control the population and prevent overpopulation on the island. Lens 80 mm.


Red-tailed Black-cockatoo Calyptorhynchus banksii
An immature female begs for food from a young male. Stringy bark seeds form part of the diet in the group in Western Victoria.
Lens 200 mm.


Laughing Kookaburra Dacelo novaeguineae
A pair of kookaburras 'laughing' together. Family groups often gather at potential nest sites and vantage points within their territory and join in a raucous chorus.


Boobook Owl Ninox novaeseelandiae
Two young boobooks look out into the world a few days before fledging. They were evicted from their nest hollow by a swarm of feral honeybees the following day. Luckily they could just fly and escaped, unlike many young birds that are the indirect victims of apiarists who do not manage their hives well.


Jumping Spider Clynotis sp
This jumping spider is only 5 mm long. Luckily the only spiders in Australia that can jump are quite small and only use their special talent to escape from predators. The background is a fallen pink gum leaf. Lens reverse 24 mm.


Copperhead Snake Austrelaps labialis
A small venomous snake found on Kangaroo Island and in the Adelaide Hills. Its tongue is used to 'taste', or 'smell', not to bite. Threatened species on the mainland. Lens 200 mm.


Rainbow Lorikeet Trichoglossus haematodus
A brilliantly coloured lorikeet found in coastal areas in northern, eastern and southern Australia, including Tasmania. Common in suburban gardens and parks where native trees are planted.
Lens 300 mm.


Black dingo Canis familiaris
Black and tan is a colour variant quite commonly seen in the Strzelecki Desert where the dingo fence keeps them out of sheep grazing areas in the south. Lens 300 mm.


Shingle-Back Lizard Tiliqua rugosa
Known a 'stumpy tail', or 'sleepy' lizard in some areas, it is often seen on roadways in the southern half of Australia. It feeds on flower heads and fruits and leaves of native plants and insects. One was a regular visitor to a malleefowl nest where it fed on their dung
Lens 55 mm


Osprey in flight- Pandion Haliaetus
An immature osprey flies among the clouds above the sea watching for fish on which it feeds exclusively
Lens 20 mm.
