While on Holiday we saw several different species of birds coming into my daughter`s garden looking for food.This kookie (I am pretty sure it was the same one every day)managed to dig up grubs from under the bark around the garden tree.

Well, I'd always heard that kookaburras sat in old gum trees - but this one is sat on a fence and seems to be enjoying his grub (literally).
You have caught this lovely creature perfectly in this shot and he stands out wonderfully against a nicely out of focus background. The most important bit - his eye - is in sharp focus and also has a nice catch-light in it too which really adds to the appeal. The light and the colours in the bird are beautiful.
P.S. Are these birds quite tame or did you have to hide somewhere or creep up on him to get this shot?

That is a lovely catch, the fellow sits on the fence and seems not to be afraid of anyone. Fine details of the feathers and pleasing pastel colour hues. Well done
