Happy to see that you are posting again. And this bird, which you have shown us in former pictures, is always very photogenic and mostly well placed in this beautiful vegetation. Very well framed shot, interesting and beautiful posting.
Thanks and kind regards

Bu gerçekten çok güzel bir kuş. Üzerinde durduğu bitki de oldukça ilginç ve estetik. Birlikte çok enfes bir kompozisyon ortaya çıkmış. Çok başarılı bir çalışma. Tebrikler.

Good to see you again!
This is such a sharp image of the tui.
Love the curly white feathers on the neck,
and all the different subtle colors in his plumage.
The plant with the red flowers make a majestic perch and BG.
I wish I could hear a tui.
TFS. : )

What a stunner, the colours of this Tui are amazing, and you've captured it perfectly, excellent detail in the plumage, your choice of aperture was spot on in isolating it perfectly against the OOF background, and the orange/red flowers really makes this image, just an awesome shot, love it.
All the best, cheers Rick :)

what a wonder, this Tui portrait. Not only is this good photography, but even art! I don't have to point out the virtues of the picture, you know exactly what you are doing!
You mention the double syrinx of the birds. Mostly we don't hear it that birds sing with two apparatus ("internal duet"), but in the case of the Tui you apparently can hear it. Interesting. Thanks a lot for this great contribution to TN, Pam.

Great shot of this Tui, it's better than your previous recent Tui post I reckon. This is a better profile and we also get a good look at the flax in flower, the nectar being one of it's favourite foods. The Tui often appears black but here the light is good and we can see the range of colours on the bird, blue/green/turquoise/brown and the white lacework around it's neck. A quintessential Kiwi photo, it's going in my favourites.
