Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: A Proud Tui


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.
