“This photo was taken in Lane Cove National Park where I go to take photos regularly.
The bird life there is very active. I caught this cheeky sulphur-crested cockatoo showing off in front of some friends,” says Martin Cook.
The Lane Cove NP is part of the traditional lands of the Guringai people. It protects a number of ancient Aborigine sites, but also a vast range of Australian wildlife.

“This tawny frog mouth was sitting in a tree quite low to the ground, and I didn’t notice it there until I was too close!
Whilst tawny frog mouths are often mistaken for owls due to their nocturnal habits, they are more closely related in species to the nightjar.
