Serendip Sanctuary

Serendip Sanctuary at the base of the You Yangs, South-West of Melbourne,  is a good place to practice your bird and animal photography. I like to visit the sanctuary a few times a year and see what wild birds have turned up. The Bush Stone Curlew and the Scarlet chested Parrot were in a walk through aviary along with many other species that are quite used to people. The Bush Stone Curlew uses it stillness and camouflaged plumage and freezes when threatened or nervous. While walking through the aviary we had to wait for the bird to stop freezing and move out of the way. It had to be hunting insects as it did not have to walk on the track we were on. The Scarlet-chested Parrot is rare in Victoria and usually found in inland Australia. The Magpie Geese are actually wild and are often found at Serendip especially when the water levels are higher. They are not the prettiest bird around – remind me more of a vulture than goose. Apparently they are very good eating in Northern Territory.

Melbourne Street Art – Best of January 2017 Pt2

The selection below was some of the best I found in January 2017 (Part 1). A mixture of spray painting, pasteups and stencils. Most were gone (over-sprayed) in the following days. The photos were mostly taken in Hosier & Rutledge Lanes and a few other laneways around Melbourne CBD (ACDC Lane, Duckboard Place, Union Lane) – all images taken with an iPhone 6S and uploaded as taken, i.e. no editing. (An interesting way to try and improve general photography skills)
