Great shot! Is that an old gum tree they are sitting on? *singing* "Kookaburra sits on an old gum tree..."

What a treat to see one! Thank you for a wonderful photo.

I enjoy all your work. The pic of the jellies is absolutely beautiful.

well they are the merry kings of the bush so it goes without saying it must be a gum tree although it looks more like a smirk than a laugh

This little guy was a fairly new arrival at one of our local zoos last year. Not the best picture as they are behind mesh (grrrrrrrrrr ) and its a bummer trying to get a clear shot without the mesh blur!

obviously taken by a blatant "picture taker" since they were all laying down "sleeping" when i first got to their exhibit areas
this one made me laugh since he has that surprised but guilty "who me? what'd i do ?" look

ps , someone asked about monopods recently..i used one on the tiger shot and even though it's my best lens at 126mm, 160 and f7, it still is i think sharper than it would have been had i just hand held as the 100% crop in the lightroom sharpening window is pretty sharp still ...it was closed and i rested it on a fence but imo it gives the extra edge ( especially when you are shaking due to the cold )

Wow. I am in awe of the talent here. I am a total amateur....I have an Xsi which I adore, but I am in over my head. I will show one of my best efforts....

My miserable dog. This was taken last summer right after I got the Xsi. That porch is buried in snow right now.

I look forward to lurking on this board and learning some good tricks for our upcoming WDW trip. We have plenty of lenses and now I need to learn how to use them properly.

Thank you both. It is a gum tree, in fact.
