Birding in the garden
My usual subjects in botanic gardens are of course, flowers. Going to the garden in search of birds is completely new to me. I was hoping on getting some Tui shots, but I actually got better images than I expected. I still didn't get to photographs a Tui though.
Before focusing on the birds, I practised with some flowers first to get my settings right:
I even got a photo of a bee. I'm still amazed that I can use a 400mm lens to do macro photography.
First off is this black bird enjoying its breakfast.
A kereru (New Zealand pigeon).
Tikaokao (California Quail). I found this one on a tall tree, first time I see one way up on a tree.
It's always a treat seeing these Easter Rosellas.
And finally, these fast flying tiny silvereyes.
