Morning sunrise inspiration “Reflections” to some it’s the obvious reflection in the lens of the landscape, but to me there’s three reflections going on here... I was reflecting through time to when the Canon AE1 was king of film cameras and how much the industry has changed but at the same time the interests we capture have not... sands of time, sunrise & sunset, constant shifting tides, things change but at the same time they stay the same... 🤔 #canoncollective #thisisqueensland #canonaustralia #ae1 #seeaustralia #discoverbrisbane
Azure Kingfisher, in my books the most beautiful Australian native, we were so lucky to have gotten so close to this fine example thanks to the experts at @ntbirdspecialists_birdingtours in the heart of Kakadu... So so special I can’t tell you how hard these guys are to get close too, I’m so happy with this shot...
Up close and personal... 🐊
The great bower bird is a house proud bird who collects all things white to dress his bower in an effort to attract the ladies... this little monkey has decided a service station car park bush is the place to be, right next to the pub... I like his thinking...
The indigenous flag is a representation of the land, sky and sun... I hadn’t seen a sunset that perfectly depicts the flag until now... literally no saturation added, no editing tricks, this is straight out of camera from Kakadu, absolutely beautiful 🌅👌 #canonaustralia #canoncollectiveofficial #canoncollective #ntbirdspecialists #birdingnt #ntaustralia #dokakadu #seeaustralia @canonaustralia @australia @ntbirdspecialists @northernterritoryaustralia @kakadutourism
After a week on the Cape with the @australiazoo crew I was lucky enough to get away to Kakadu with @jaycollier & @ntbirdspecialists_ birdingtours and within minutes of departing Darwin we were onto the Gold... pictured is the rainbow bee eater doing what his name suggests, eating bee’s... these guys are all over the cape and northern parts of the NT and are one of the most beautiful feathered creatures on earth... #canonaustralia #canoncollectiveofficial #canoncollective #ntbirdspecialists #birdingnt #ntaustralia #dokakadu #seeaustralia @canonaustralia @australia @ntbirdspecialists @northernterritoryaustralia @kakadutourism
You asked for a croc shot... introducing the rarest of the species the Toyota Troopie Croc Cruiser, rarely seen in the water this particular croc prefers moderate speeds on dirt roads and can climb incredibly high gradients with low range ability... seats 5 in air conditioned comfort and when caught in a mechanics trap they change the oil, check the tyres and release from the jack stands with caution as it could take off without so much as a horn beep or two... Captured and photographed here at the bait station on the Steve Irwin Wildlife Reserve on the Cape York Peninsula, Weipa... #thisisqueensland #australiazoo #steveirwinwildlifereserve #canoncollective #landcruiser
There is an abundance of birds of prey on the reserve due to the abundant food sources and among the bigger avian variety is the Sea Eagle 🦅 floating effortlessly this female was keeping a very keen eye on our group, it’s not everyday an eagle sees people in these parts... her curiosity paid off for us with up close detailed photographs achieved... #steveirwinwildlifereserve #australiazoo #canoncollective #thisisqueensland #birdsofprey
Introducing the “White lipped tree frog” these guys can reach 14cm long and can live up to 10 years in the wild... they eat insects mostly and by the looks of this picture he’s had dinner, you can just see the leg of a stick insect hanging out his mouth... #steveirwinwildlifereserve #thisisqueensland #canoncollective #australiazoo
Just got home from spending a week on the Steve Irwin Wildlife Reserve up in the Wenlock River region near Weipa on the Cape York Peninsula with this bunch of legends... be prepared for heaps of Australia’s cutest wildlife over the next weeks posts... #steveirwinwildlifereserve #canoncollective #thisisqueensland #australiazoo
I absolutely love Meerkats, they’re the second cutest African mammal (next to the Mongoose) The display at @australiazoo is absolutely fabulous and offers people up close and personal look into the behaviour of a mob of Meerkats... Pictured is the watchman, they look out for predators, one or more meerkats stand sentry, to warn others of approaching dangers. When a predator is spotted, the meerkat performing as sentry gives a warning bark or whistle, and other members of the group run and hide in one of the many holes they have spread across their territory. #australiazoo #canoncollective #visitsunshinecoast #justwaitingforamate
An epic day at @australiazoo with the @canoncollectiveofficial crew and a great guest appearance by @robertirwinphotography thanks for a great day from the best crew at the zoo #canoncollective #australiazoo #visitsunshinecoast #thisisqueensland #mantramooloolaba #canonaustralia

Clear sky’s and low tide, get out there look up and shoot the universe... Set your camera to manual then dial up 10sec @f2.8 @iso3200 Don’t forget your tripod and cable release or just use a 2 second self timer... #canoncollective #visitmackay #thisisqueensland #astros
That incredible morning light 🌅👌 #urbex #canoncollective #mackay
Sunrise Roo’s on the beach at Cape Hillsborough in the Mackay region where the kangaroos and wallabies come down to where the rainforest meets the sea at sunrise every morning to greet tourists... #thisisqueensland #seeaustralia #canoncollective #visitmackay
