Spring has begun here in Melbourne, Victoria. More flowers are opening and the birds seem more active and happy, certainly more in number. In the past week I’ve had the opportunity of taking photos of several different birds in our garden. And with the sun more visible the colours are more vibrant and pleasing to the eye.
This kookaburra was in our crepe myrtle and seemed unaffected by my fairly close proximity as I took photos of it. However, the sun was going down and I was limited in the images I could get without full sun on it. I didn’t want to startle the bird by trying to walk around it so stuck to just the one side with the sun shining on its back.
