“We were staying in a holiday cottage in the rainforest at Lake Eacham in Queensland. On the very first morning I went out early to explore the rainforest. I heard the song of a bird I did not recognise, and after some stalking I was rewarded with this delightful Pied Monarch (Arses kaupi).
It seemed to be as interested in me as I was in it but it soon vanished back into the rainforest,” says Danny.
“The lack of light under the thick canopy of a rainforest can be challenging for wildlife photographers. I have found exploring the edge of a rainforest, along a wide track or road can bring you into contact with wildlife and still have reasonable conditions in which to take photographs.
This was the case that first morning, a great start to a holiday.”
Danny McCreadie is amateur wildlife photographer from Adelaide. Danny has been a finalist in the Australian Geographic ANZANG Wildlife Photographer of the year on three occasions.
