A WELL TITLED STORY ON THE ABC. Each time I visit the Quokka's of Rottnest I feel that pain... Over the years my publishing and promoting of Quokkas has contributed more to improving the 'happy' side of these endearing little macropods. There is a sad story, read it here featuring the work of WA Ph.D. candidate Veronica Phillips. http://buff.ly/2g3xbDl…/quokkas-rottnest-island-smi…/7930208

I must admit, I am a 'napper'. I take naps because I wake early and sleep late to maximise my working time, or as I like to call it 'playing time'. Your body needs sleep but if you love what you do, it's a pleasure to rise in the morning. Make every day, but in particular Mondays, a pleasure to wake up to and you'll condition your mind to appreciate the start of a work week. I hope you've all had a fantastic Monday!

Another piece from my 'ASONE' collection - 'Woodlands and Heath'

The acceptance of ‘what is’, also known as living in the ‘isness’, became a revelation to me quite recently. It is very pertinent to photography because considerable anxiety can arise if the ‘photographic conditions - weather, light, finding the subjects you seek’, are not immediately forthcoming. I now totally accept ‘what is’. This applies very much to wildflower photography field work. I might fly from Brisbane to Perth, drive considerable distances only to find that I have ‘just missed’ the season! So I have a choice, become anxious, upset, filled with mind stories, or just accept the ‘isness’. In my new state of mind I discover many more exciting photography subjects. This image was on one field trip ‘out of season’, so I thought. What a surprise to find the later rains had generated a spectacular new blooming of colour.

Without a doubt bird photography is one of the biggest challenges in photography, especially when working with small fast moving species and of course birds in flight. Find out how I tackle this oh so gratifying task on my blog

Tassie, you beauty!

At 600,000 ha, Southwest National Park is Tasmania’s largest park and the heart of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. Pristine rivers are surrounded by dense rainforest and buttongrass plains that are towered over by some of Australia’s wildest peaks.

Hard statistics tell us that attacks by deadly animals are quite rare in day-to-day life. Very few native animals go out of their way to cause us harm and often many creatures are dangerous only because we place ourselves in positions that allow them to be (swimming in tropical seas during the stinger season, for example).
