At last!

I have been on the hunt to capture a photo of two of our delightful, but oh so fast moving, pretty fantails or Piwakawaka.
I do not have the perfect shot but here are some “almost got you”.


And two shots that I am much happier with given the ceaseless activity of these New Zealand natives.

How about this for a tail at full fan…..?


Good night

It has been a lovely sunny afternoon. The light lingers on and the sun has only set in the past ten minutes.

The blackbirds were singing a good evening song and I spotted a Fantail in the garden.

I had no joy finding the Fantail but I did capture some photos showing the end of a calm, golden, late spring afternoon.
