Not really a birder (yet), but since getting a 100-400 my interest has peaked a bit. Here are some shots I got on a recent trip to Fraser Island (off the Queensland coast of Australia). I was trying to get a shot of a kingfisher (I was staying at Kingfisher Bay Resort after all), but in the few times I managed to get out with the camera and lens, I did not see one kingfisher. Here are some that I did get ... welcome any cc

Very nice set Andrew, that hook looks painful.
