Today there has been a tui teasing me all day long. We have a kowhai and a kakabeak tree in our front garden both of which are in flower and the tuis love them. Unfortunately every time I get anywhere near with the camera it flies off. I am lucky in that I have a huge window directy in front of the flowering trees, so I can usually photograph the birds without them noticing me. Today’s tui is a little smarter, he either saw movement or the light caught on the lens but either way he decided it was not a safe place to feed right now.I will keep trying to photograph it and when I do, I will post some images here for you.
Here’s a few more from Blake’s shoot yesterday. I love the faces he pulls, full of expression! Check out the last photo – classic!
