Excellent capture of the Tui. The range of color on the bird and blooms is extraordinary. Nice soft BG.

long time since I saw you, I have missed you, welcome back.
I hope you are doing well.
This is a very fine picture of a beautiful bird, the colours and pattern in the plumage are amazing.
Well composed with a good POV.
Well done, old friend.

nice to have you here again. Your shot is wonderful, this bird is special and very pretty. Interesting feathers around the neck.
And the yellow part in the face.
A fantastic bird, thanks for sharing it with us

Hey there Ms Pam
Great shot, love the pollen on the head
Mmmm, I think it might have been too long since I came around to your excellent
and exhaustive portfolio, but then again both of us were rather sporadic on the site
for quite some time. It is great to see one of your superb postings once again. The
lovely little Tui & the Flax almost seem to be synonymous. Somebody just better tell
this bird that it is supposed to appear all black (chuckle). It is ok if he doesn't know it
though as it probably won't bother him then. So, let's leave the All Blacks to be all
black and the rest of NZ may don whatever colours they fancy. You did an excellent
job to show us this bird in its amazing technicolour dream coat.
Well done and TFS.
