noisy miner - manorina melanocephala

noisy miners are particularly pugnacious honeyeaters. they noisily defend their ‘patch’ of trees from other birds, especially other species of honeyeaters which may be seen as competitors for the food resources, and these are vigorously chased away. many other small birds are also driven from the area, and sometimes miners will even chase after cormorants or herons that may fly past, or harass them mercilessly if they perch somewhere in the miners’ territory. because of this aggressive behaviour, areas inhabited by noisy miners often support few other birds.

i love to photograph australian wildlife and try bringing the captured wildlife closer to my audience. by showing these beautiful animals i hope to make the viewer aware of the fragility of nature and what we need to protect. •
every day our planet loses about 200 species of plants, bird, and mammals.
i hope to capture a fraction of them before they are gone…

rhinoceros iguana - cyclura cornuta

the rhinoceros iguana (cyclura cornuta) is a threatened species of lizard in the family iguanidae that is primarily found on the caribbean island of hispaniola, shared by the republic of haiti and the dominican republic. they vary in length from 60 to 136 centimetres (24 to 54 in) and skin colors range from a steely gray to a dark green and even brown. their name derives from the bony-plated pseudo-horn or outgrowth which resembles the horn of a rhinoceros on the iguana's snout.

golden whistler - pachycephala pectoralis

though golden whistlers sometimes perch quietly among the foliage of trees or shrubs, the males are often noticeable by their rich, golden plumage, extending from their underparts and in a collar around the bird’s neck, contrasting with a jet-black hood and a white throat patch. the female whistler is drab by comparison, greyish and indistinct. even if they are not seen, their beautiful whistled song carries on the wind for hundreds of metres and is a common sound in the australian bush throughout spring and summer.

magnificent tree frog - litoria splendida

the magnificent tree frog is a relatively large tree frog, with the males reaching a length of 10.4 cm (4.1 in) and the females 10.6 cm (4.2 in). they have olive to bright green dorsal surfaces with white ventral surfaces. the undersides of the feet and legs are bright yellow. most specimens have white or sulphur-coloured dots on their backs, of varying densities. the older magnificent tree frogs can be distinguished from white's tree frogs by the presence of very large parotoid glands, which cover the entire top of their heads and droop over their tympana. the tympanum is large, almost the size of the eye, and partially obscured by the parotoid gland.
