A Picnic with a Magpie
Today we spent the day out by the lake enjoying a picnic in the sun. It was pretty wet still from all the rain we've had lately, but amongst all the mud puddles and wet grass we came across a small semi circle of concrete steps. Perfect for Lili to crawl all over and entertain herself while we laid back and enjoyed the sun and some food. (after we left we saw a placque and aparently it was an amba theatre, I think that's how you spell it.).
We saw so many birds today, from several types of parrots, to swans, these lovely black ducks, and even pukeko's. But my favourites are the magpies. We have a lot of them here and I love their song and the way they cunningly watch what you are doing. They have such character. So I really enjoyed finally being able to get up and close with a pair today and was stoked to get this photo. I love it.
