An injured tendon in my right arm is finally starting to heal so I feel I can carry and hold up this heavy lens again. Yet to download images to my computer so don't know if there are many keepers, but I so enjoyed being out on a still autumn morning. I saw many lovely birds including glossy ibis with shiny feathers. Just before heading home I saw a kookaburra in a tree with a small snake it had caught in its beak. Only got a couple of shots before it moved on. Doubtful they will be sharp enough to upload here, but will see. It was probably a juvenile tiger snake, tiger snakes being common around the lake, and sometimes seen swimming in it too! They are very good swimmers. Funny thing was there were workmen doing maintenance on the boardwalk on the lake and they were listening to a radio station playing dance-oriented 80s music. It was kind of surreal watching birds to a party music soundtrack. The birds didn't seem to mind. Shame about the people around. Very early morning is a truly magical part of the day. My favourite. I have no problems getting up for it. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
