Woodman Point Jetty, busy with fisherman and Pelicans.

These two pelicans were hoping for a free feed, but unfortunately the fish weren’t coming to the party!

Australian Pelican in Flight on the Swan River

On the weekend I ventured down to the Swan River, and found a dozen Australian Pelicans. This guy had just leapt out of the water, beginning his search for some mid-morning breakfast.

The Australian Pelican is a fascinating bird, which claims to have the longest bill of any living bird.

Commonly having a wingspan of 2.3-2.6 metres, these birds glide through the air almost effortlessly.

Location: Swan River, Perth, Western Australia

I am constantly surprised by the beauty I see while riding my bike along the Swan River through South Perth and Kings Park!

Williamstown Photowalk with DJB Photography

Last night I attended the Williamstown City View photography walk by DJB Photography.

I had a great time meeting new people and experimenting with my camera’s manual mode.

Below are my favourite shots:

A Sulphur-crested Cockatoo’s Morning Flight

I snapped this Sulphur-crested Cockatoo’s morning flight over Lake Mulwala in Yarrawonga on the weekend.

This shot was taken just after sunrise, when there were literally hundreds of cockatoos flying around and making lots of noise!

My lens was at full zoom (400mm) for this shot, and I also had to crop the photo a little.

Location: Lake Mulwala, Victoria, Australia
