Each year Mrs. Ha and I try to squeeze in a visit to Victoria park for the Lunar New Year fair. Tomorrow the Year of the Horse starts so today was our last chance. Other than bumping into Bob T. it was a little disappointing this year. There seemed to be more emphasis on politics and junk than flowers.
I did take one shot that looked ok in B&W but it had nothing to do with the fair.
But of course you need a bird. I picked Hair-crested Drongo today as we have had one in the garden as I have been writing this. It sat deep in the tree and would not perch out in the open. They rarely do. So here is one that cooperated back in December 2011. The glossy sheen is anything but black when the sun catches it. Maybe today’s visitor will return but I fear not. And we have to go out to dinner en famille this evening so I have to go and scrub up. I shall not be applying the Hwamei’s liquid eye liner.
