Crash landing...............! by

This Silver Eye must have been distracted by me just as he was about to land by the apple. The result was a bit of a collision with a Chaffinch who was already feeding !
Location: At my garden, Paihia, Bay of Islands, New Zealand.

    Perfect timing and capture Roy ~ hope the little chaffinch was okay!

  • He certainly was Susie – he had his share of the apple after he recovered ! Thank you for your kind comments.
