Laughing Kookaburra, Dacelo novaeguineae, at Tom Groggins, Kosciuszko National Park, New South Wales, Australia. Now, I'm sure there's gonna be Australians who wonder why I'm posting such a common bird, but I'm very taken with them.

Grey Headed Flying Fox and young taking off from tree, Smiths Lake, New South Wales. We crept into some dense bush with lots of thorns to see these guys - alas when we discovered them, we were leaving the area, and the sun was high in the sky, making them very difficult to photograph from underneath. But I was rewarded with this cutie.... well, a cutie with a 1 metre wingspan!
