numerous wildlife species which have adapted to coexist with humans
in the urban sprawl of Queensland's metropolitan areas are a constant
delight to urban wildlife enthusiasts.
the most fascinating are the often-maligned flying-foxes, who spend
their days hanging out in suburban camps and provide a nightly spectacle
as they fly out to forage.
a Brisbane-based flying-fox carer since 1990 I have had the opportunity
and privilege to photograph many orphaned and rehabilitating Black,
Grey-headed and Little Red Flying-foxes.
Since moving to the Cairns highlands in early 2007 I have worked
with a dedicated band of wildlife carers who rescue and rehabilitate
bats - in particular the Spectacled Flying-fox (found only in the
northern tropics and listed as a vulnerable species). My aim is
to continue to capture something of the beauty and intelligence
of Australia's spectacular megabats.
Also in the gallery are images of other wonderful native creatures
who nest in our trees, feed in our gardens or inhabit our waterways
- plus cards featuring native flowers and trees which provide food
and shelter for our wildlife.
