Tui (bird, 2 imgs)

The tui is a New Zealand bird, almost black but with deep colours showing in some light.

This one fiddled about outside my window today, right in the middle of a shadowed canopy on a dull day.

Great captures. Thanks for sharing. I love the little white bow-tie!

Thanks for commenting.

The bow-ties are really striking. I was a little disappointed that they don't show up that well here. We were wide open at minimum focus distance so DOF was very tight.
Cheers,

Great shots of such a fun subject.

It's really a shame about all the gray days we've been having. Could do with a bit of sunlight to show off their true colours.

Tui at Tiritiri Matangi Island, Auckland.
