For many years he has documented the wildlife in this region, contributing to the Times and to environment reports on wetlands and remnant bush.

The Greenwood resident recently took this photograph of a great egret at Lake Joondalup.

“Our wetlands are rapidly drying due to the hot weather and lack of rain,” he said.

“As the lakes dry, the inhabitants become more concentrated. This concentration of food creates a feeding frenzy amongst the birdlife.

“A visit to Neil Hawkins Park and the observation jetty over the next week will be rewarded with an amazing array and number of feeding wetland birds.”

On a lighter note, he recently visited the Sculptures by the Sea exhibition at Cottesloe to record the art and a self-portrait he described as a “multi-selfie”.

The Times looks forward to many more pictures from our contributing photographer.
