They say every picture tells a thousand words…beauty, ecology, life, connection, nature are just some of the words that enter my mind when taking in the very natural and ‘alive’ images of Australian birds captured by Nicolas Rakotopare.
It is this type of photography of nature that inspires us and educates us – even those of us who, for some reason, are unable to get out there and see it for ourselves…or who do get out there but simply just miss seeing it (let’s be honest – birds can be cryptic and move pretty fast!). Either way, it’s images like these that make nature tangible to us all – that make us care about nature and its conservation.
Whether it is the inquisitive gaze of a king parrot, or the magical courtship dance of a pair of brolgas, these images will motivate you to keep your ‘bird watching’ eyes peeled on future escapades into the Australian wilderness.
