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.
Thanks for visiting.
