Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree

13 Apr

A lovely day in early Autumn and I could hear the kookaburras singing.  It took a while but eventually I found them.  Just as the song says, they were sitting in the old gumtree, merry, merry kings of the bush. I zoomed in with my 300mm lens mounted and the camera sitting on my gorilla pod on the table out the back of the house.  What I see is not one kookaburra but three, although shooting through the gum trees I don’t know if the photos show all three.


I tried cropping in to see better, but looking through the leaves the camera sees what the natural eye filters out, so the shot looks blurry.  Probably is, I’ve since learned a bit more about how to tweak my manual focus a bit better.
