Kowhai

We have several large kowhai trees that are home to a pair of tuis. I stood and watched their antics today as they were hanging upside down to extract the last drop of nectar from the kowhai flower. Do you see the black tui shape in the middle of the photo ?




The kowhai brings me inspiration to work some more on this, although I think I need more yellow in the blocks


I like the orange tulip with it too.
