Kereru close-up

Another heavy, louring day; another day when the birds seemed to pay little heed to the guy wandering slowly around, occasionally pointing the camera at them. This kereru seemed comfortable just sitting, doing nothing. What light did filter through the overcast sky came from the wrong direction, but with a kereru this cooperative I couldn't resist photographing.

Of course she didn't mind, you are quite beneath her.

This photograph completely supports your earlier observation, Zhoen - "Country estates, but kind to her tenants". Definitely landed gentry. Beautiful image, Pete - you have captured her character perfectly.

I was indeed, Zhoen — and your comment made me laugh out loud :-)

Thank you Lisa (and I agree wholeheartedly with that comment of Zhoen's).
