As a part of my latest project for photography, I decided to take a trip to Featherdale Wildlife Park – and as I said it was not to look at the animals. I was there to look at Featherdale as part of the urban landscape. It was really interesting to walk around there without focusing on the beautiful animals there.
However, once I had finished doing what I needed to do for photography, I went back round especially to look at the animals, because lets face it, who wouldn’t want to spend time just wandering round when at a wildlife park.
I love the Tawny Frogmouth. At Featherdale, they sit very tamely in an open area where you can get up quite close to them. This one kept his eye on me whilst I was taking his picture.
The peacock put on quite a show for all the tourists.
Everyone takes photos of the beautiful side of his tail – but not me! I was more fascinated to look at the way his tail feathers look from behind.
So, I did look at some animals, and I’ll go and visit again sometime, only I think I’ll take a sketch book next time rather than the camera.
