Photogasm: Aussie Animals

When I was in Newcastle visiting my parents, my dad and I went to the Blackbutt Nature Reserve so that we could get in some practice photographing animals. They are tough things to photograph, but I think I got some good ones.

A koala doing what koalas do best - sleeping

A Goanna. These lizards can get up to 2m long & they are aggressive

I wish I paid attention to the label on the cage, but I didn't so this guy will just have to be known as a Aussie owl

One of my favourite Aussie birds - the Galah

Two Galahs snuggling. Just so cute

I took the photo just as this little duckling fell over

What are you looking at Mr Emu?

  1. Love the snuggling Galahs….looks like the one on the left is really enjoying things! And I have to say I am very much like a 10 year old boy and laughed out loud at the name “Blackbutt”. I know it’s insanely immature but I just couldn’t help myself. :)

  2. Great photos! That Galah is beautiful! I’m a little afraid of your close-up of the Emu though – looks like he’s just daring you to come closer so he might head butt you or spit in your face. ;)

What are you thinking?
