Best Shot Monday: Kookaburra sits in the old gumtree...
Not a particularly good shot today but we heard this screeching and cawing outside and looked out the kitchen window to see not one but TWO kookaburras sitting on our pool fence! They seemed to be having a conversation without the usual cackling laughter one usually associates with this iconic bird.
I called for Himself and snuck outside with the PAS while he went for the DSLR with the biiiiig lens. I couldn't get too close so I had to shoot this with digital zoom and as such I was pleasantly surprised by the result.
Here's another one which is not technically v good either but he just looks so funny sitting there on our sail.
Of course, Himself got the big lens onto them and shot some things like this. Which is just showing off really.
Even after being back for 5 years, I still get excited by koalas in the gums around our place, or the sight of a pair of kookaburras!
