I – Ibis and Iris

The straw necked ibis can be called a ‘bin chicken’ or ‘dumpster diver’ as they are often seen on top of dumpsters or rubbish bins in the northern parts of Australia. This photo was taken while on tour from Darwin to Broome in 2021.


Iris species

There are many iris species in Australia. This purple one was taken between Albany and Esperance where I drove through the Stirling Ranges. Here is a PDF explaining many of the plants found in the Stirling Ranges.
