A brillliant day – we drove to the Blue Pools. Last year it was below freezing and the area was gilded with hoarfrost. This year it’s nearly warm out – so different – especially the sandflies which think it’s still the height of summer… Never mind… I shot away, admiring the amazing blue of the pools.

On the way back up the hill, we paused on a bench and along came this little guy – as friendly as can be in the middle of a wild forest. He sat a few inches from me, checking me out and then seemed to be posing, jumping here and there maybe a metre away. Just a lovely moment – so nice to capture it here.

  1. What an adorable little guy. I just love songbirds, and I miss having my bird feeders. I used to have regulars who would stop by at the same time each day.

    Sandflies . . . hate them.


    1. I Would love to have birdfeeders, but the love of my life also loves his cats… Fortunately, NZ is THE land of birds, so once I step off the property – it”s all on.

      As for the sandflies – a couple got me – can’t stop itching…
