This is where I do an explanation of my phone photo from my Last on the Card post.
On Thursday afternoon I heard and saw a group of Kookaburras chasing each other around the garden. I suspect the parents were trying to send an offspring out of their patch to start life somewhere else.
Suddenly there was a loud banging and crashing in my house. I went to investigate and found a Kookaburra in the loungeroom next to the back door. There was a small hole in the screen door and I slowly slid the door across and the Kookaburra flew out. Once outside there was a loud cackling of all the Kookaburras in the trees.
Here is the back screen door and the beak shaped hole
I wondered about the hole as it was small and the wire was bent outwards. After a while I went to go out of the front door and this is what I found.
The wire on the screen is not soft nylon it is metal wire, not as hard as the rear screen door but hard enough. I was amazed that the Kookaburra wasn’t badly injured.

Sorry for being a bit late with this Last on the Card. Thank you to everyone who contributes their good and not so good photos. Like a lot of people I forget and am surprised at what was the last photo on the three devices I use to take photos. I went from –
the weird with a good story
to the usual Weekend Sky
to a lot of focus would be better
So let’s see what you have for April 2021
The rules are simple: 1. Post the last photo on your SD card or last photo on your phone for the 30th April. 2. No editing – who cares if it is out of focus, not framed as you would like or the subject matter didn’t cooperate. 3. You don’t have to have any explanations, just the photo will do 4. Create a Pingback to this post or link in the comments 5. Tag “The Last Photo”
Some rules are there for a reason and some are there to be broken with great effect.
The post in the centre but the Spangled Drongo was the subject
The spire is the imposing feature. Being in black and white I feel make it more so
Looking where you are going – gives a sense of movement
The same photographing flying birds. Sometimes having the bird in the centre shows off the birds features. I like having negative space in front when I can to indicate where the Square-tailed Kite is soaring, hunting for food.
One Paper Daisy in each third with room at the top to grow
Does the Rule of Thirds work in square format? There is enough negative space so perhaps.
Mostly flowers should be the centre of attention, especially roses.
Others always want to be the centre of attention. King Parrots can be clowns around my place
Is it the table and chairs that draw the attention or is it the shadows?
Hope my playing with the Rule of Thirds and trying to explain what I works.
