The male looks his best when in flight or displaying his underwings and flanks. Found usually in rainforests, but ventures into adjoining eucalypt woodland to reach other areas of rainforest. Small flocks roost in tall rainforest trees. In the morning, small groups, noisly move out to feed on big fruiting trees.

What a character this guy was – makes me smile just to look at him!

Retirement has made it possible for me to be more creative and what better way to enjoy being creative than photography!
I have been fortunate enough to have traveled throughout Australia, England, Ireland, Europe and Egypt, keeping my trusty camera with me at all times.
