My favourite photographs from March

My camera has been quietly resting for the last few weeks but I have been out and about on a few days in March this year.

Here are my favourite photographs from March. I really like the contrasts between the brown bleached hills and the lush greens seen in the trees and leaves of other photos.  Nature showing so much of its best around or near my home.

This ball of feathers is a fantail preening - so little stillness with these delightful birds

      That Kereru was utterly splendid and the setting was magic and so spirit lifting. I’m glad you enjoyed him/her. The light on those hills that day was another great moment. We could do with some rain here in April!

    You were lucky to get the fantails still long enough for you to take a shot – you gotta be quick with them! 🙂 Can’t get over how brown those hills are – it sure has been a long, hot summer.

      Thanks Juliet. I thought of you as I was taking photos of the spider’s web. It reminded me of the Labyrinth you walked last week at St Matthew’s church. I loved some of the corners this wee spider had constructed. The hills look a little better now but we still need good soaking rain here. Perhaps today we will get the promised heavy rain after showers.

    Especially the hills and your preening fantail. I admire all your bird photos – I can never catch anything feathered, they are always too quick for me.

      Thanks for your kind words. Birds are swift and I do get frustrated as I miss getting the image time and again but sometimes patience and perseverance pay off:-) I’m glad you enjoy my bird photos! NZ has some unique and beautiful birds.
