Birds of Carnarvn Gorge   Leave a comment

Part 2, to my posting of photos from my weekend in Carnarvon Gorge – a collection of some of the bird photos I took out there .

First up some Emus sighted on the way in, was great to see them in the wild.

I was standing next to this tree trying to get another photo of the Kookaburra, when this parrot landed only about a metre away.

Kookaburras – all washed up   2 comments

A couple of months ago (yes, still going through old photos) we visited friends down the Gold Coast for an afternoon Barbecue.

While we were there some Kookaburras came around for their afternoon feed – it was raining so they were looking pretty washed up.

Girraween Kookaburras   Leave a comment

We recently spent the long weekend camping at Girraween National Park, with some great friends.

As always looking to photograph everything of interest there.

Below are some of the Kookaburra photos I took.

In Flight

This one was taken just before the one above, and it is the baby taking off, after the parent gave it a Lizard it had just caught.

Then there is this one, could not resist the Jekyll/Hyde comparrison.

All taken with the 7D and 70-200 lens.

Still a heap more photos to process.

Hope you like them.

Cheers Dave

Kookaburras   1 comment

The afternoon, before I got the Kingfisher photo, I was over at my Mum’s at Bribie Island, and there was a few Kookaburras hanging around,the people across the road feed them.

They are from the same family of Birds as the Kingfishers.

 

 

Taken with Canon 7D and 70-200 lens, shot at around F4.
