After spending several hours working on the latest photobook of my travels,
and feeling in need of some fresh air and exercise, I grabbed the Nikon
and headed off to a local suburban green belt.
It was a glorious afternoon, with temperatures in the low 20Cs and barely a breath of wind
(as can be seen by the still water in the reflection shots above and below)
As the creek gently meanders its way through the vegetation - sunlit in patches
and shaded in others, one could easily believe that the hustle and bustle of suburbia
is far distant. However, at the top of that left hand bank runs a busy road
carrying traffic through Adelaide's north-eastern suburbs.
(This is the same area as shown in my header)
Imagine my surprise and delight when this gorgeous Laughing Kookaburra flew
in to land on a branch just a few metres ahead of me . . . .
Although he was not "laughing" (a beautiful and uplifting sound I've experienced on other occasions), his presence was nevertheless captivating.
. . . SO glad I dragged myself away from the computer & desk !!!
