We have a small flock of resident New Holland Honeyeaters in our yard. They love hanging about in our ivy-infested apple tree. The blighters never, ever, pose in decent light when I have a camera.
These photos were taken during the week using the Nikon D3000 DSLR, on auto. Images cropped and sharpened in GIMP.
It is a sunny day today and I expect these birds will taunt me again! They will flit and twirl and fluff and preen. They will vanish as soon as I return with a camera. [sigh]
I’m still flat out every day rewriting and editing and getting the odd scene up on Wattpad – 66 parts so far. Today I start editing a scene with over 2000 words and, at the speed I’m going, it will take me all week. I want to get it done today. I run my scenes through Autocrit and by the time I take out repetitive words and phrases, cliches, reduce the passive speech, showing vs telling, I end up with a better scene.
Thanks for dropping in. Do have a good weekend. 🙂
