Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: The Power of One

Good morning from a cloudy spring day here in Hastings.

Yesterday was lovely – so warm that I went for a walk at lunch time in the park across the road to take some photos.  Here are some that I found that was perfect for Cee’s monochrome challenge. First up is this rather vocal tui.  They are very busy at the moment.  I can see them flying around in their mating ritual from my computer desk.

Then I stalked this magpie.  I haven’t really seen them around here in town.  I have seen a lot of them flying around during my weekly drive down to Otane.  But never here in Hastings. So I tiptoed up to it.  But it was smart and would go in the opposite direction whenever I got too close to it.  And that included up in this tree.

And of course I had to add a floral – this magnolia. At least with blooms all I have to contend with is the wind.
