A MOTHER wondering how to put a roof over her daughter's head, a curious cockatoo and a portrait of strength on International Rural Women's Day:
These are some of the stunning photos captured by Bendigo Advertiser photographer Noni Hyett in 2021.
Her pieces celebrated everything from people surrounded by their loved ones to first responders keeping us safe amid trying conditions.
The keen wildlife photographer has also shared beautiful pictures of birds in all their beauty and cheekiness.
All pictures that appear in this gallery are available to purchase at the Bendigo Advertiser offices, 67-71 Williamson Street, Bendigo, between 9am and 5pm weekdays.
