Kookaburras

These kookaburras joined us on the verandah on our recent holiday.
I think they were hoping that we would share our dinner.

  7. Wow, Leanne! These are really amazing - I am in awe of people who can take great photos of things that move :) I too really like the reflection on the beak in the first one as well as the beautiful orangey-peach background in the third one. Kudos to you.

    I have heard of these, but never seen one.
    Simply adorable, and your photographs of them are wonderful.

  9. These are awesome shots of the Kookaburras Leanne! I love their laughing call. I met my first Kookaburra just a couple of weeks ago at a wonderful local wildlife sanctuary for injured and education animals unable to be released back into the wild.

  15. I have no idea where you were but it looks remarkably like the cottage we stayed in at the Jamieson caravan park in Vic. where they got our bacon rinds.
