Yesterday I saw a Tui feeding from the Kowhai at the front of the house. I grabbed my camera and shot through the glass. It was so dirty that the image came out with a haze in front of the entire scene. It ended in the trash can. So I washed a patch of the window (it’s a very large window) and figured I would keep watch.Today I managed to capture these two images through the same window. I am really pleased with the result. At the other end of the house the windows are small and you guessed it – rather grubby. I didn’t bother cleaning them as it is a bit of a mission and I didn’t have the time. However when a couple of tui sat in the tree arguing I couldn’t resist picking up the camera – dirty windows and all. The last shot of the day was of a tui at the feeder. I love the pollen above its beak showing just where it had been feeding earlier in the day.
