a fair dinkum, Aussie Kookaburra

...it's the Laughing Kookaburra in fact, 'cepting for this one wasn't laughing, nor singing, in the rain, earlier this month.

  Just a drop or two for a while, in the back garden, and Kooka' sat for a brief camera session.

Oh gosh, what fabulous photos! I still use Aussie slang here in Canada, and people never know what I am talking about! My granddaughter calls them Kookabirds.

A fine series of portraits which give a clear idea of the sitter's character.
