Exciting summer day
9

I got to see a Sacred Kingfisher, for the first time today, at my favourite local park. I got 22 photos and it stayed put for 13 mins, posing for me, till I started to move and then it flew off. That was wonderful.

And then later saw 4 turtles on 2 logs near the island in the lake till two juvenile birds came along and annoyed them. But still great to see.

And then watched as a papa duck protected his family from passersby and they later walked along the path that I had walked earlier.

All taken with P950 in Bird mode. Melbourne, Australia

Eastern long-necked turtles and two juvenile water fowl - not sure which ones.
