Ea­gle eye cap­tures spring

Whitsunday Times - - LIFE -

THE won­der­ful abun­dance of wildlife in and around Bowen never ceases to amaze lo­cal pho­tog­ra­pher Anne Smith.

You only have to look at the stun­ning range of birds snapped for the Whit­sun­day Times on this page to see how spoiled we are.

“You don’t have to travel far, you just have to keep your eyes open.

“All these birds were pho­tographed within five minutes of town,” said the founder of the Bowen and Whit­sun­day Pho­tog­ra­phy Group on Face­book.

“The other day I spot­ted 26 emus in one pad­dock; we’re just so lucky.”
