Greater Flamingo - Capturing Nature Print



Greater Flamingo, Phoenicopterus roseus. This flamingo skeleton was presented to the trustees of the Zoological Society of New South Wales (Taronga Zoo) in 1893. The zoo helpfully donated many bird and animal species that year, when museum funds were halved because of a severe economic depression in NSW; as a result, opportunities for obtaining specimens were extremely limited. Photographer: Henry Barnes

The perfect gifts for lovers of natural history and vintage photography and ephemera, the Australian Museum Shop is proud to offer a range of prints from the rich Museum photographic archive that show the workings of the Museum in its history's infancy

High quality archival image presented on 330gsm cotton rag paper, ready to frame. Available in 3 print sizes.

A large format photograph, the aspect ratio does not fit exactly into modern paper sizes A4, A3 and A2. The image will be scaled to fit, in the most appropriate manner to the paper size selected, leaving the image frame visible and as close as possible to the paper edge
