Having a good laugh together!

That's what it was as we were leaving Elysian Rock Lookout (taken outside Leuralla Amphitheatre Leura, Blue Mountains, NSW) when these two kookaburras were laughing their heads off (figuratively speaking). I was putting the cameras away in the car but my wife reminded me I was missing a good photo opportunity since they were right near us, so I quickly got it out for this shot.

Re: Having a good laugh together!

But for your wife you'd have missed it, Ross, so I'm giving her the actual credit for the shot whilst acknowledging you as not such a shabby cameraman ...

I am in agreement with Aussie Mark on this one. ;-) Full marks to your wife for spotting that photographic opportunity. But some credit is due to you for executing it so well. :-)

Nice one.

Wives are good at reminding, sometimes usefully!
