Kookaburra



Kookaburra, originally uploaded by Em Dy.

When I saw him perched on the twig like that, I just had to take a photograph.

Taken August 2006 in Australia

What a delightful little bird. It almost looks fuzzy instead of feathery.

That is a really awesome bird, and I'm sure glad you just 'had to photograph' because you got a great capture!

I can see exactly why you felt you needed to take this picture. It's the kind of scene that just reaches out to you and refuses to let go. It's so lush! And the bird is beyond beautiful.

I'm so glad you shared this as part of this week's Thematic Photographic theme! I've got to really think hard now to come up with a good theme for next week!

Smarmoofus, my Australian visit was memorable because of the birds.

Misty Dawn, we were having a group project then but I just had to walk away.

Carmi, it called out to me or that's how I felt. Thanks for hosting!
