Artist's Description

On my first visit to Australia, I formed a bond with kookaburras. Why kookaburras? After the long flight from Los Angeles, I awoke from my first night’s sleep in this new place to the unmistakeable laughing call of kookaburras, and I instantly connected that aural memory with my entire trip. It wasn’t until my second trip that I saw kookaburras regularly, as a pair of them were living in the trees behind my sister’s place (near Brisbane). The young male, seen here, was bold and flew onto the verandah railing frequently, giving me many photo opportunities with my first DSLR and its kit tele-zoom. People often denigrate kit lenses, but I was (and am) very happy with this lens. (Olympus E-300 & Zuiko 40-150mm zoom at 150mm, f/4.5, 1/200 sec., ISO 100, morning sun, handheld)
