Sunday afternoon visitors

How to spend a relaxing Sunday afternoon?  ... photographing a Kereru couple in our garden. 

They spent their time moving from Kowhai tree to tree with a few stops on overhead wires and fences. Photographing them wasn't too hard although there were a couple of shots of Kowhai minus any sign of Kereru.


Whenever I tried to video them they sat quietly with hardly any movement, as soon as I stopped videoing they did their crazy position swapping routine with a lot of wing flapping.   Being quite large birds it always amazes me how they don't manage to crash into each other or fall out of the tree!

I could get quite close maybe a couple of metres away and while they knew I was there they didn't seem to mind.
