Everything Pales in Comparison

Winner of 'People's Choice' Award in "Materially Designed" RQAS Exhibition 2023

'Award of Excellence' in Queensland Wildlife Artists Society Inc (QWASI) 40th Anniversary Exhibition 2023

The pale-headed rosella is usually one of the more quiet and timid of the Australian parrots, but on this particular day they were too busy happily devouring the berries from the Corky passion vine to even notice my presence. It was a family affair, with both parents and three younger birds (still with a bit of red showing on their heads) enjoying the feast. Unfortunately, the Corky passion vine is a weed here in Australia, but that did not diminish their pleasure scoffing the tasty berries.

Devoted Discombobulation

You’re walking along a bush track, then like magic, a family of tawny frogmouths seem to mystically coalesce out of the surrounding branches. They seem to merge into the bush, but the striking eyes draw your attention. The parents both look watchful, protective of their baby, while the young one seems to look with curiosity. Hello.
