My first post on this blog was a photo of a kookabura in the early morning light sitting on my balcony. Seven months on I’m still going with the blog and I got another chance to snap a kookabura — on a friend’s balcony this time. A few seconds later a whole flock of them flew down from the trees. Nice of them all to pose for me!
My first post is a photo I took early one morning a few years ago: A kookaburra sitting on the balcony. I love the way the bird is silhouetted in the early morning light. The sky looks a bit moody but it feels like it’s going to be a nice, sunny day. That’s a complete fluke – I wasn’t sitting there waiting for it to come along, working out the exposure. I just saw the bird and grabbed my camera. You don’t usually see kookaburras at the beach, they prefer gum trees. But maybe they like the ocean too.
