The 40D is still a great camera. Fine shots of a very pretty bird.

wait a minute... there's actually a bird named kookaburra?
i thought it was just some fun sounding word in a kid's song...
Thanks kinghong1970, yes it is a bird here and the one that you would hear in a lot of old movies for it's laughing call.

Nice Brian, he is a cheeky looking fellow. The 40D is a great second camera. I actually prefer it as a backup rather than my old 50D.
Thanks L.J.G., I see a lot of people who have the 40D don't upgrade from it, they use it till it is to expensive to repair. I wasn't tempted to spend more money on a 50D, 60D or 7D, this is all the camera I need for a crop and a second camera.

some nice captures mate, the bg looks a bit hard, i would maybe clone out the branches in the bg to make them look even better.
I'll have a go at doing that Peter, I'm not much of a photo editor and usually think I stuff the picture up when I do that. I'll have a go though ....

That 40D is the camera I use all the time, backup is an XT! Great photos.
Thanks Flo, I started with a 400D, it was a great little camera. Happy to have these bigger camera's now though as the 400D was a bit small for my hands.
