Here's two birds i made pictures of while we were camping in the Wilderness over Christmas.
("made pictures of" is a term used by John Blakemore, who has taught me much on B&W photography)
The first is Pete - he's a dear Peacock who is always looking for a mate, and ready to display his colours to anything and anybody that could ever possibly be his friend.
The second is of a nectar eating bird (anybody know what it's named?) who i made a picture of while sitting under the awning of our campsite!
