[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Silvereye, White-eye (Zosterops lateralis)

Widely distributed in New Zealand and is often considered a pest in vineyards and orchards. It arrived naturally in the country from Tasmania, although possibly helped by sailing ships. Generally is one of the most common birds in gardens.

Hello Richard
Welcome to TN:)
A very interesting close up of the Silver eye. I guess you zoomed in a bit too close that you had a wee bit of trouble with focus.But this is indeed a wonderful pose that you have captured.I know how difficult these little birds are to photograph..so one can imagine the efforts you would have put in...the colours are nice and the muted Bg sets off your subject very well.

Thanks for sharing ...look forward to your future posts..You will enjoy being around here...feel free to go around and critique others' posts and you will have more people coming to your gallery...

Hello Richard

Welcome to TN. I am pleased to see you managed to get your first image uploaded successfully. I love Silver-eye as you can see by my gallery. I love the inquisitive pose this wee guy has. Looks like he was having a good feed of apple. Thanks for sharing and I look forward to seeing more of your work.
