A few of mine I treasure:
I managed to get this shot of a Sydney funnel-web spider during a BioBlitz I was running last year. Ended up getting it published in Frontiers in Ecology and the Environment
Every Australian will have heard the classic call of an eastern whipbird thousands of times, myself included, but they’re exceedingly difficult to spot; they mostly hang out in really dense undergrowth and their call makes it sound like they’re up in the trees, so you look in the wrong spot. After 15+ years of trying to see one, I finally spotted a pair last year!!! One of the most exciting nature moments I’ve ever had.
This Labium pilosum is the first ever photo of a live specimen
I was on Heron Island in January this year doing some research when I was shown this ancient loggerhead turtle by a tourist as I walked by on a lap of the island while birdwatching. I spent 20 minutes watching her lay her eggs, and then another hour afterwards slowly inching her way back towards the water.
No particular story beyond this shot of two agile wallabies, it’s just a photo that I really like
