Photograph of a Kookaburra

And now...for something completely different!

Well I did have a photography blog I made especially for things like this but to be honest I never used that blog much at all, it just never happened.

Here is a picture of the standard I had hoped for a photography blog...It is a Kookaburra - The use of zoom reduced the overall quality a little bit but I think it's still a decent photo.

The Kookaburra is a native bird of Australia and neighboring island's. It is quite an interesting bird...recognized by most for its distinctive 'laughing'. I believe there is a "dream time" story (Aboriginal culture) about how the Kookaburra got its laugh.

Anyhow here is the picture - It was taken by me at a place near where I work. Enjoy :)


  1. It's beak is so grand and awesome! You should've recorded an audio snippet of it laughing~

  2. Hey Fang, it wasn't actually laughing when I took the photo...although that is an awesome idea. I see them every so often as I live close to a water course (and they like fish??). I'll have to keep an hear out!

    A cockatoo bird visits randomly, I'll upload a picture of him now when I find it :)

  3. Haha, that's so cool, I actually love how that bird looks, so awesome.

  4. That's a nice little bird :)
