Kookaburra snags a meal

It was a very short space of time between hearing a hearty chorus of kookaburra laughter in the backyard tree and racing out with camera at the ready for some regular bird shots.

I did not expect to see this poor skink breathe its last breath in the beak of this bird. These are not the sharpest pics I’ve ever taken, but they certainly capture the drama of the moment.
