While at Kingscote on Kangaroo Island, South Australia, we came across the Pelican Man who came to the jetty every day to feed the pelicans and to give a little talk to those who were interested in listening. I think these birds are fascinating and it was interesting to learn about them.
If there’s one animal I’m afraid of in Australia, it’s the emu. I’m terrified that these fellows will chase and attack me and this one looked like he was ready to do just that.
I have had a good run on birds lately (they just seem to like me 😉 ), but the kookaburra is by far my favourite. I love these creatures and I don’t mind their 5am calls really. It’s hard to describe but to me it just sounds like home. Luckily I can fall asleep easily again for another couple/few hours. If you haven’t heard a kookaburra’s laugh before, here it is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qix6oUxim3Q
Following on from my previous post, here is another bird I caught posing for me. I believe this is a Great Cormorant. The rest of the photos are of his surroundings and friends.
I had a great time capturing these birds over the weekend. Not a subject I usually go for but there they were posing for me 🙂
