A pair of Laughing Kookaburras perch on a branch in a backyard in Byron Bay waiting to use their strong beaks to smash a wasp nest and eat the grubs.

Many thanks for checking out my photos, please feel free to give feedback! My wanderings in nature and observations of birds, particularly raptors, is what gives me great joy and constantly reminds me of the beauty and strength of life. My favourites are raptors, I love their freedom, grace, ruthlessness, pride, adaptability and flexibility and I learn much about parenting, protection and blind faith from them.
