NatureScope Video: Koala, Western Grey Kangaroo, Common Brown Butterfly, Marbled Xenica & Australian Painted Lady Butterflies
Here it is folks, the first episode of NatureScope’s new online documentary video channel! This video is edited from an afternoon hike spent at Mark Oliphant Conservation Park at Upper Sturt, in the Lower Mount Lofty Ranges of South Australia. Shot on a warm Summer’s afternoon in January 2011, the tall forest canopy entertained a variety of birds while my photographic features were a sleeping koala, three species of bush butterflies and a curious Western Grey Kangaroo. The online video channel, which will feature prominently on Youtube.com will have an open format approach to content relating to the observation and conservation of nature. Location-based episodes like this will be the mainstay however, and you can expect future hike videos representing a wide variety of Australian wilderness habitats. Marine locations will also feature, including rocky reefs and a few other surprises. I hope you enjoy the video below, and if you do, please take a moment to share it with your friends and fellow nature-lovers… be they on Facebook, Twitter or across the room.
