“She’s only a woman.” Pam was wading through the shallows of Perth’s Swan River photographing birds when a couple of passing lycra-clad cyclists opined on the foolishness of hand holding such a long lens without a tripod. “She’s only a woman” was their gratuitous observation.
Despite the pedallers’ doubts on the capability of female photographers, many of the images in this book were hand held with that long lens. Conversely, many also were taken with a gimbal mount on a tripod.
This book is a celebration of the wonderous birdlife we have in Western Australia. Images range from Perth’s Swan River, Rottnest Island, the Houtman Abrolhos, Shark Bay, Cape Range, the Ningaloo coast and Broome.
If you find any errors in species identification, have some mercy. We are mere shutter jockeys not ornithologists. All errors are entirely are our own and feedback is most welcome as we will update and correct this book from time to time.
