Nice shot of a kookaburra - we saw one at a zoo recently and one of the boys got to hold one. He was dead chuffed!
I'd be pretty chuffed to be able to hold a kookaburra too, but I'm quite thrilled to just have him visit our tree.
Wow amazing shot you managed to get up real close, Clio lending a helping hand for Coombe Mill
He very kindly moved closer to have his photo taken. But I did crop the shot.
Thank you :o)
Amazing. What a beautiful bird =) #mysundayphoto
They are usually really hard to spot and well camouflaged, but he stood right out on the power pole - until he hoped into the tree.
Laugh Kookaburra Laugh! From one Wren to you, I hope you have more great birds in your tree this week!
When I looked up what sort of Kookaburra he is I was surprised to find he's a 'laughing kookaburra'. I wish we got wrens in our tree!http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kookaburra
What a remarkable photo, a great captureThank you for linking up
Thanks Darren, just sheer luck that he came to visit on the day I really needed a Sunday Photo.
What a beautiful bird! Enjoy the rest of your day.
The way he kept posing for the camera he certainly thought he was good looking! (if only he understood that lighting was also important)
we have 2 kookaburras that come to get a bit of steak now and then. cheeky boys- they bang their beaks on the railing to tell me to hurry up! great shot.
How did you start getting the steak to them? Unfortunately, I don't think my dogs would agree with me giving steak to the birds. Freki considers it his duty to tell them all they are trespassing...unless he's feeling lazy.
