Michael & Sue Hoey, A lilac-breasted roller, national bird of Botswana, taken in Chobe National Park, Botswana, in August 2013. This bird is a spectacular mixture of colours; camouflage is not apparently a priority.
Michael & Sue Hoey, in Belize, in March 2015. For anyone with a love of birdlife, Black Rock Lodge, next to a river in a tree-covered canyon, is a rewarding place to be based at.
Michael & Sue Hoey, A sacred Ibis, drying itself on the outskirts of Perth, taken in September 2014. We had not expected to see much wildlife so close to a busy city, but in one walk we saw black swans, sacred ibis, a kookaburra and numerous cormorants.
Marcelo Alvarez, Suspicious company, Everglades National Park. White heron surrounded by alligators. At peace but probably not for long
Michael & Sue Hoey, An emerald toucanet, another of Belize’s toucans, taken on another bird watch at Black Rock Lodge. Although not a particularly rare bird elsewhere, it is unusual in that part of Belize.
Marcelo Alvarez, Florida alligator, Everglades National Park. Alligator looking out for a morsel … or more.
