Lovely day today so I decided to take a trip out to Old Bar Beach (Mid North Coast, NSW Oz) to take pics of kite surfers. I arrived to see none. Not bloody one! Zilch! Just some barefoot kid with a suction thing trying to catch worms at the mouth of the Manning River. Then I heard something behind me. A kookaburra had landed in a tree just a few feet away. “Hey, you! Stay there! Don’t move ya mongrel!” I ordered and rushed back to my car to get the camera. When I got back I was surprised to see him still there. So I got busy taking as many pics as I could. Every time I’ve seen close-up pics of kookas on Red Bubble I’ve thought “why can’t that happen to ME?!” Well, today it did. And not before time! I ain’t gettin’ any younger ya know.
