This week, in keeping with a Spring theme, Monique and I have chosen birds:

My photo is of a honeyeater in a neighbour’s cherry blossom tree. I think her nest must have been nearby, because she was a bit agitated, flitting back and forth, and keeping an eye on me as I took the photos.

Monique’s photo was taken a couple of years’ ago, and is of a young gull on Penguin Island, who appears to be looking over its shoulder at Monique.

Midweek Moment is a weekly photographic endeavour in which Monique Mulligan and I team up to share our favourite photos on our websites. It’s a way of stretching ourselves creatively and a nice distraction from writing. Click here for more of our Moments.
