A little sunbird at the window
Fascinating to see a little sunbird relaxing on the window bar of my kitchen. I could see it close-up because of my tinted window pane. Obviously it could not see me. The photos were taken with a low-range Minolta digital camera given to me by my sister. Not bad with a bit of photo editing.
As I wrote before, I used to take pictures as a hobby, with my Nikon and an array of expensive Nikor lenses. I still have the lenses but no latest digital Nikon camera to match. The photos will be brilliant if taken with my close-up lens.
The photo above showed it standing on one leg. To prove that it is not a one-legged bird, take a look at the photo below.
