Pretty Boy – Australian King Parrot

Pretty Boy – Australian King Parrot

Near where I live is a fairly tame Australian King Parrot we affectionately call “Pretty Boy” due to the brilliant colours. Today he stopped in for a bit of seed so I could not help but capture some photos.

Freshwater Crocodile (Crocodylus johnsoni)

In March 2022, I attended a workshop on animal macro photography which was run by Narre Warren Fine Art Printing, and the Animals were brought along by Aussie Wildlife Displays. This was one of the first workshops of this style I had attended and was well worth it.  There were a number of different animals but this photo was of the  Freshwater Crocodile (Crocodylus johnsoni).

Sumatran orangutan (Pongo abelii) in B&W

Malu the Sumatran orangutan (Pongo abelii) from the Melbourne Zoo (captive). I decided to edit this photo a bit different in black and white using the DxO’s Nik Collection 4 and specifically the Silver Efex Plugin. An interesting fact about the Orangutan is that they can measure up to 1.5m tall and can weigh up to 100kg.Captured on 15/03/2022 2:44:38 PM with a Sony ILCE-7RM4 and 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG DN OS | Sports 021 @ 308 mm, 1/125 sec at […]
