Kookaburra stink eye!



Hopefully you enjoy seeing the delightfully expressive tree kingfishers as much as I enjoy taking photos of them. While walking through Neil Hawkins Park yesterday I spotted the female Kookaburra here high up in a tree and surprise, surprise I actually had my long lens with me, although this tiny carnivore was not well pleased with me aiming my camera in her direction, I think she had spotted something delectable on the ground, you can see in the last shot her appetite won over her apprehension, I get that.. mine usually does also :) Happy Friday, take care and stay safe...P.s. definition stink eye!

  3. What super shots. I love the name, Kookaburra! In fact, I know people whom I have called that name. Well, at least the first part, "kook."

    Dear Grace, you have to remember that much of what I do or say is "tongue-in-cheek." I'm a cynic and a a rebel and I love to tease. So, you're right, probably not a lot of fun going on at the mall with the exception of the young people; we really have no other place for them to go. Keep up the good work. ��

  7. Fine photos of this bird. It has real personality, and it does not appear to trust you.

  9. Those photos are priceless. As a fan of birds (and regret that I never got into birdwatching) I loved the expressions you caught with the first two pictures. Such a fun medley!!

  19. Awwww...this is fantastic Grace. It brought back loads of memories of my youth in girl scouts when we sat around a camp fire and sang the Kookaburra song.
