The two piwakawaka returned this morning, doing circuits around the house and posing to be photographed. Mostly they preferred the same end of the verandah, where I had to shoot towards the sun.

Oh will you look at this little one! Breast feathers so downy you can almost feel their softness - but still, such an intense gaze.

"Feh, I pose. You worry about the light, picture-guy."

Zhoen, you got this exactly right - thank you for a laugh at the beginning of a chilly Monday morning :-)

Zhoen, I agree with Lisa — spot on. Thanks :-D

just so, Zhoen....and every feather in the right place!

gz, I have others in this series where it's looking distinctly dishevelled. That might have been deliberate, of course. ;-)
