[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Kookaburras are very social and are an iconic bird where I live. They are very territorial and can become regular visitors to backyards seeking food handouts such as minced meat (we give them minced kangaroo pet food). That is a hanging basket and not a feed tray.
Their well known (laughing) call is actually a call marking the boundary of their territory.

Hello Ian,
Nice to see these rare Kokaburras ☺. Well captured;well focused and good exposure. Details look good. But personally, I don't like Man Made Objects in Nature/Wildlife Photography. Otherwise a beautiful photograph with perfect background.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice weekend 🙂,

Hi Ian,
I partially agree with Srikumar - this is a beautiful photo. Great details on the birds' plumage, well blurred background and proper exposure. It's impossible to photograph birds on the feeder without showing any man-made objects. But it doesn't mean the photo would have lower value due to this.
Kind regards from Ireland, László

A very good idea... double-cute indeed BG and details of models are excellent well done IAN FEGENT
