Haven't done any clever craft work,
or been anywhere interesting,
or done anything interesting.
Recently I was tripping around Blogworld, visiting friends of friends of friends
when I came upon an interesting challenge.
The challenge was to go to your My Pictures file.
Pick the fourth folder and the fourth picture in that folder and write about it.
Now of course it may be that you come across a photo that is of a person and not something you want to put on the internet. Then you might just have to pick any photo from that folder and post about it.
So that's the challenge:
The 4th photo in the 4th folder in your My Pictures file.
So here's mine.
This noble looking bird is a Laughing Kookaburra.
This photo was taken one morning in our Jacaranda tree.
He is a member of the Kingfisher family and a carnivore. He eats snakes , lizards, grasshoppers and such.
He's somewhat of an Australian icon and his loud cackling laugh often wakes us up in the morning if we are lucky enough to live somewhere where there are plenty of tall trees.
The chuckling voice that gives this species its name is a common and familiar sound throughout the bird's range. The loud 'koo-koo-koo-koo-koo-kaa-kaa-kaa' is often sung in a chorus with other family members.
The Laughing Kookaburra is not really laughing when it makes its familiar call. The cackle of the Laughing Kookaburra is actually a territorial call to warn other birds to stay away.
A kookaburra kills its prey by bashing it against a perch.
Kookaburras are found predominantly in the eastern part of Australia.
Average size: 42 cmAverage weight: 340 g
Australians love kookaburras and often feed wild birds that come to their gardens.

They have been known to steal meat off the BBQ!
OK now your turn.
Will you take up the challenge?
