Good morning from a cold and stormy spring day here in Hastings. Hopefully this will be the last storm of winter. I am a bit worried as I am in the Blossom Parade on Saturday, so it needs to warm.
Anyway onto warmer days and this gorgeous tui. These photos were taken last week on the first day of spring. I was hoping to get some decent shots of our native birds. And this tui obliged. I knew they were around as it is now their mating season. I could definitely hear them. You can’t miss them. Anyway, after walking all around the park this tui came and sat on a branch just feet away and just posed for me.
So close that I could get the details of it’s feathers.
It is all fluffed up to impressed it’s mate.
I was ecstatic. As you can imagine.
Another entry for Cee’s challenge these past 3 weeks.
