Still hanging around — Piwakawaka


The piwakawaka are still making good use of the verandah. Sometimes I find it difficult to believe they're not more interested in the camera than in using the railing as a staging post for insect-snatching forays, but I don't mind. If they're happy to pose, I'm happy to photograph.

Andrew — they're irresistibly cute. Real posers, too.

"Vogue!"


Sorry. Truly, truly sorry.

Maybe they instinctively know they have an adoring fan base! Love these sweeties and I love saying their name;)

Zhoen, I like it!

Barbara, they certainly have a fan here, and it's hard to imagine anyone not being entranced by them.

You're so right, Zhoen - chin to the side and front foot forward. I'm naming this bird Angelina.

Lisa — Ha! But what if it's a male? Actually, I guess it doesn't matter — as far as I know, the sexes are indistinguishable. They can tell the difference, of course, and that's what's important ;-)
