Brolgas kick up their heels

Brolgas (Grus rubicunda) love to kick up their heels.


Caught this pair making bit of a splash near Ingham the other day.


Pity, best action came in solo show.


Back together at the end.

Fantastic action photos. Is that a duck or duckling in the second photo? Brolgas are still on my wish list!

Hi Mick: Indeed, 'tis ubiquitous Black Duck. Unlike Brolgas, they're everywhere!

Hi Tony
Yes the high kick would have looked better as a "pas de deux",
Striking image, none-the-less.
Cheers
Denis
