Travel Theme: Subtle


Good morning from a cool sunny Hastings day.

My photos today for Ailsa’s challenge at Where’s my backpack? were taken yesterday at Pakowhai Park.  The weather was glorious, slightly windy but it was quiet at the park.  I had a couple of amazing experiences.  The first one was catching this white faced heron.  Ok, the background colours are not subtle but the colours of this beautiful elegant bird is.

Then on the way back to my car this fantail decided to let me take photos of it.

It was still difficult as they can’t stay still for very long.  They are like butterflies flitting about and just settling for a short time.  I had a lot of photos of blurry faces where it moved.

Then it flew around me while I walked back to the car.  That is until a woman came with her dog.
