Australian Kingfisher

Australian Kingfisher known as Kookaburra is a native bird of Australia and New Guinea. Their call resembles human’s laughter.

Last weekend, when I visited Green Patch of Jervis Bay in NSW state of Australia, I found this bird sitting on a branch. The bird gave me a quite a good show and it was an amazing poser.
