To me, the tūī is the colour of night - jet black with flashes of aurora green, shooting stars of white on his nape, the moon on his chest, and the blue promise of dawn. Twenty years ago there were only twenty breeding pairs in Wellington; now thanks to pest control they are a ubiquitous sight in everyone's garden. "Unfurling" will be available at my exhibition at Zealandia Ecosanctuary in June, Giclee printed on Canvas Lyve at 50x50cm.

Art of Birding Blog by Judi Lapsley Miller
Fine art inspired by the stories of birds and the natural world. Starting with photographs, I let my imagination take me on flights of fancy. What is real and what is imagined is blurred. What is physical and what is virtual is disrupted. Bursting with colour and life.
