Juvenile tui on flax bush in the backyard
The reality of trying to take a photo 365/365 hits home now that I am 'home', away from some of the dramatic landscapes that were my holiday fodder! But this young tui visited the flax bush in my backyard today to provide a 'home' photo. I saw tui visiting two weeks ago before I left for my holiday, but didn't expect them back as the flax flowers have now mostly turned into sturdy seed pods. The bird's background is provided by some of my holiday laundry on the washing line!
