It’s thrilling to see flocks of wild Australian budgies and even more exciting when you capture an image like this.
Our collaboration with Rhonda Heslin includes many images of people and livestock who live in this part of the world, as well as the mammals and birds which call Australia home.
‘Budgies need water every day to survive as their seed diet provides no moisture, so flocks can often be seen at waterholes or dams.
While budgies have been bred as pets in a range of colours, in the wild they are yellow and green, with a small patch of blue on the cheek.
They feed on seeds from native grasses and herbs such as saltbush. They usually travel in packs and you can’t miss their bright colours.’
