Weekly Pet Share: Bathing Beauties

Bathing Beauties (1 of 1)

Good morning from a rather frosty Hastings day. There has been a lot of snow down the South Island which is actually rather early for us – being only mid April.  Normally it would be next month.  The wind was freezing here in Hastings but the sun was out which meant we were warm inside.

For Michelle at Hope* the happy hugger‘s weekly pet challenge I have gone for something different.  Last weekend while I was at Cornwall Park with my daughter I came acrosse these sparrows enjoying a bath.  It was too cold for me to go swimming, but not for these hardy birds.  I have been trying to catch this for a while.  They tend to fly off when I come up close or as in the other day the light was too strong and my photos were a tad overexposed in parts of the image.  This time the light was a lot softer and I managed to get some cool reflections too.

There were so many sparrows enjoying these puddles. – Actually more like the public baths.
