A beautiful Wellington day is something not to be missed. There are usually beautiful reflections in the water and still windless sunny days are something we often get but the region is not remembered for. Saturday was just perfect and I chose to stay home instead of racing out to the inlet to stalk the kingfishers and their reflections. The tides were all wrong!
Our new concrete driveway makes it much easier to get different angles on the silvereyes (waxeyes) because I can take my office chair out there and scoot all over the place with it. The birds don’t seem to mind and instead of getting the same shots from inside the house, I am getting some lovely different backgrounds and perches.
We have a large flock of silvereyes around the house this Winter and a group of regular tui visitors as well. I am never at a loss for something to photograph and I never get bored with them. I consider myself very lucky!
