Hello, I’m a country girl born and bred in Dubbo, NSW Australia. I am a avid photographer of all things Australian. I love the “Aussie Bush” and taking photos of wildlife, nature and farm animals.
Most of my photos are Farm Life in Country NSW.
I am now doing a lot of Pet Photography as well as I have a great affinity with all animals.
I volunteer as a photographer for the RSPCA to help all their animals find a forever home…

Enjoy browsing through my photos…

    Burrs??? Another great shot Helen!!! : )

  • Thanks Sweetie! The sheep has burrs or little thorns in their fleece from bushes etc and when the shearer grabs the wool the burrs dig in their hands. They are very painfull…
