Default Out of his tree..

Dumb bird. Someone please tell this Kookaburra that he is supposed to sleep in trees rather than on powelines across main roads Normally they sleep 6 abreast but only one tonight.

Just after 1AM on one of my midnight beach walks. Amazing what I've come across prowling this area at night The other night I literally tripped over an Echidna. I've seen giant snakes, giant crabs. giant Kangaroo's etc.

400D.

Amazing detail in that shot, it looks like the bird is posing for you... By the way photos of giant snakes/crabs and especially Kangaroos will be much appreciated...

I'll see what I can do Geoff. I saw one huge kangaroo the other morning. Reckon it stood 7 feet tall in a relaxed stance. That's BIG for the variety (Grey Kangaroo) found around here Snakes; plenty of pythons. Haven't officially seen a really big one but I've caught glimpses of one living in an empty block next door. Judging by the glimpse I got of it's head, it's well over 8 feet. I hear it every night while imaging.

We don't have any of those roaming free over here... Only time I get too see Pythons or Kangaroos is if I visit a wild life park/Zoo...

Its amazing what you see at that hour. In my youthful mortage paying days I often went to work in the Bananas with a head torch. All was quite and peacful until an owl decided to get a sugar glider then there was banging and crashing everywhere.This is where my wanting of a telescope developed. Asi do you have many feral dogs there ? This is a huge problem here in NE NSW.
