Magpie Lark in the garden

A not-so-frequent visitor to the garden is the Magpie Lark. Usually it's the doves in abundance pecking away at the fallen olives. Perhaps no other bird dares make an appearance (puffed up and strutting they know how to assert themselves)... in any case the olives have been eaten and the doves have long since gone elsewhere. I snapped this creature through a rather foggy window (who has time to look out the window, let alone clean it when there's making to be done??). So it's come out blurry and I have amped up the saturation and all of sudden there are patches of strong colour and the suggestion of a painting. As mentioned previously, what is in front of you is not all there is ... the arrival of a new bird is ... well ... inspiring! This particular creature always seems to be looking about, curious at what's happening around, whereas the doves were always head down, pecking, too busy feeding and not at all interested.
A new phase for moi auss…
