A delightful shot. Lovely pose, good low POV and an excellent background. :-)
Maybe not the sharpest image but he still stands out very well against the background and it's an interesting shot of a bird I haven't seen too many images of - so thanks!
And a great note as well.
nice portrait, good pov, nice dof, well composed shot,
tfs & regards
Hey John, nice shot of this unusual bird. Nice detail on the plumage and a good POV.
What a cute bird, it is crisp and clear. Nice POV and BG.
Thanks a lot
Hello John & welcome to TN.
Very well composed shot of your Kookaburra, excellent POV. I listened to the soundbite link, a great idea. Color, DOF, light, detail, all look good to me. Nice BG bokeh that compliments well also. The only thing I would perhaps do differently is loose the dead space bottom frame..
great catch of this interesting bird.
Very nice sharpness, POV and colors.
Very well done.
Hi John. Very fine capture of this kookkie. The framing is good and the background treatment is just right. Well presented. Murray.
This is a bird that I will not see in Quebec for sure. What a little beauty that you caught at the right moment. This is so fun when things happened like this out of nowhere :-) You caught a great pose from the bird, details and I like this composition. You seem to have been very close to the subject. This is a very nice post. Thanks,
Good detail, nice and natural colours.
Well done and thanks for sharing!
this is the first time I am seeing a Laughing Kookaburra. Classic bird shot pose, the bg is excellent, would have liked a bit sharper image but that's not always possible.
Thanks for sharing!
Ah yes, the kooky Kingfisher!
Seen some last year in King's Park on Perth, as well as in the Canning Valley in Ferndale. Both times of course I had left my cameras at home, as a hike was what we wanted. Shooting birds can really mess up hiking plans!
Nice capture and presentation, though I would have preferred a wee sharper, and might drop the b/g below the wood... What say you? Jay
felicitation pour cette capture,un joli oiseau que vous avez reussi a mettre en valeur.

Great details are captured in this little fellow!
I like the point of view, and they always have this funny attitude...
Well composed presentation, close-up work is well done!

I just had to comment on this image. Our Kookaburras are so beautiful aren't they. For a while I had one that would often land on my clothes line but I haven't seen it since I got my camera. Anyway your image is just grand. It posed nicely for you. Lovely colours, and the quality of the image is great for one that was taken so quickly.
