Hi, I've just been through your collection - your bird images are excellent because I know how difficult it is to capture them. I've never been fortunate enough to have had a Kookaburra pose like this for me.

Cheers, Paul

Hi Paul, thank you for the compliment. This kookaburra was indeed quite tame, I could approach it to less than 10 meters. There were many kookaburras in this corner of the Canberra Botanical Gardens. I just took up trying to photograph birds, part of the success must be due to the fantastic 70-200 f4L IS... Cheers (Hartelijke Groeten?), Martijn
