Good morning from another sunny Hastings day.

For this challenge by Jennifer I have gone for a New Zealand theme.

One Word Photo Challenge: Pine

 Of our native bush to be exact.

I spent a lot of time last year in spring trying to get decent photos of our native fantail.  They were little devils.  They would come right up to me and fly around my head and then take off when I even dared to point a camera at them.

It doesn’t help that my camera is super slow after I dropped it and cracked the screen.  The sensors have been affected so it hates focusing.  My manual focusing is way to slow.

That said I loved the way that the light filters through the ferns and leaves.
