I remember three months in Queensland, being woken up every morning at daybreak by a mob of those bastards outside my window (not for nothing are they known as the laughing jackass).
Great shot, but I wish you'd used a 12-bore.
That's a really good bird photo. Lots of feather detail, a great pose, and a nice catchlight in the eye.
+1. Nice shot of a bird I have never seen before. Wikipedia says that laughing kookaburra is native to Australia. After listening to its "birdsong", I am glad it is
Sorry I absolutely disagree with you on that point. There is nothing better than the sound of the Kookaburra laughing with its friends in the trees. It shows that the local environment is a healthy and happy place.
Don't ever turn up around here with that attitude please.
Well then the cricket balls would need to be renamed as well.
I didnt find them a problem when I was in Australia.
Nice catch Rich. The 55-200 is heavily under-rated now there is the 55-140 and 100-400 but it is a great zoom that is great for travel photos.
I think this is still one of my favorite kookaburra shots. This guy was actually tapping on the front lens of the 18-55 with his beak while I was trying to shoot him. Wish I had had a smaller aperture setting but I think it was one of the first times I used the X-T1
