About Deane Lewis

Male, Mixed Laterality.
Day Job: Broadcast Engineer.
Contact: Please feel free to correct any identifications I may have wrong.

About this site was originally created as a way to keep track of the Australian birds that I have photographed, and to try and help others identify Australian Birds by including photos of Male, Female & Young variations, as well as shots from different angles.
I later added Australian Mammals, then Australian Damselflies & Dragonflies, Australian Butterflies, Australian Frogs, Australian Reptiles and Australian Moths.

I will also add various other random pieces from time to time.

In June 2016 this site got a total makeover, with everthing now HTML5 compliant and mobile friendly.
