Today's ABC Open photos

Roosting owls
By tealebritstra ·  · From Pic of the Week
I had a really lucky day with spotting roosting owls today! There was a pair of Barking Owls (Ninox connivens), and three separate Southern Boobook Owls (Ninox boobook) including this one.  Unfortunately, this individual had chosen a rather open spot to rest, and was being harassed by several medium-sized birds. The poor thing almost looks like it's asking me for help getting rid of them 😉 On the bright side, the other birds did eventually leave it be, hopefully allowing it to get some rest.                                     Published 16 May 2017.  Glen Eden QLD 4680

Loch Ard Gorge

Loch Ard Gorge is a stunning and beautiful spot on the great ocean road, but it is one of the most dramatic scenes for the lose of life in the 1800's as the gallions hit rocks along the ship wreck coast, with passengers scrambling to the beach for survival.               Published 17 May 2017.  Port Campbell VIC 3269

This white-faced heron was preying on small lizards for its meal at the headland overlooking Main Beach, Yamba.  There were three there, and they seemed to be getting lots of catches.     Published 16 May 2017.  Yamba NSW 2464
