|Deck rail (the cat wasn't there)|
As you can see the kereru is not actually sitting on the deck rail. The Old Girl had her camera and was taking ages to get the shot before the bird flew away. "What were you doing?" I asked. "I was trying to get the distance right" she said. "Why didn't you just take plenty of snaps and we could choose a good one later" I said. "You'd excel at being a sports photographer".
For this I got the icy stare.
After that comment I got to thinking of how a catalogue of 'just missed' action photo's could be popular. I suggested that I could publish her best efforts in this direction.
They are along the following lines:
|100 metres record being broken|
|The controversial winning goal at the World Cup|
|100 airplane flypast|
|Giraffe eating out of hand|
|Cat catching toy helicopter|
|Girls at fashion show|
|Twin Tower collapse|
"Don't you blog that" she said when I told her of the idea.
As you can see I have so am now in the bad books.
The Kereru came back and nestled in the bushes besside the deck.
