    Good shot what lovely colours in the feathers

  • They are very attractive when seen in the sun Kala otherwise they just look black and white ! Thank you for your kind comment.

    I am so looking forward to photographing this bird…

  • They come and go Larry – at the moment we only have Mr Scruffy – our regular pair seem to be on holiday but they are around.

    Great capture Roy. You are lucky to have a faithful visitor like the Tui. :))

  • Yes we are Michelle – but at the moment our regular pair seem to be on holiday and we only have Mr Scruffy coming around. Thank you for your lovely comment and favourite.

    He hung on tight because he knew he was going to be fed, Roy! LOL. Very well seen!

  • I think they are learning that we put food our daily – thank you for your comment David.

    I can see he looks a bit windswept – you get such wonderful expressions in the faces of the birds you photograph and this is no exception. Great work.

  • Thank you so much for the compliment Peter – much appreciated. The wind was playing havoc with his/her feathers !

    Great capture Roy ~ he’s a beauty :)

  • Thank you very much Susie – I think this is actually a female, she doesn’t appear to have any white at the place where her wings join her body.
