    At the kitchen sink on May Day – depths of subdued grey-greens in the rain, the red flag only a pale imitation.

    Try as she might, Sheila could not shake off the feeling there was another shag perched at the far end of the log, imitating her every move.

    Even though she turned her head as suddenly as she could, it was always gone – she could never see it.

    Then along came a giant green penguin! Sheila recoiled, instinctively pulling in her head and spare foot as a sign of submission, but that stupid little black shag just squatted there, totally oblivious to the danger.

    Pleased to hear it, Islander! I try another, with small version that may allow the eye to not be distracted by the details, and larger too because I at least like the details too.
    They double as a representative image of Gisborne’s weather today, like most of yesterday's. And surely there was some photo-worthy autumnal light and weather elsewhere to post here? I hear there were gale-force winds and torrential rain and floods?

    That little black shag seems to be an outcast loner rather than cheeky.
    Here’s an unplanned capture of at least 10 little black shags just after a formation landing at considerable speed, still decelerating. I was lined up taking photos in the pre-sunrise fog cf. these ones four days ago when they swooshed in, hence all that flax obscuring the action. They generally feed and hang out in distinct groups of 10-18 or so, but there does seem to be this odd one out. I'm sure it would really have a story to tell, but sadly I can’t hear it for retelling, other than as ‘speculative fiction’ perhaps.
    (Truth to tell, all those little black shags look the same to me – perhaps they all take a turn keeping the pied shag company one day at a time?)

    After yesterday’s rain, today was bright and cold, and the streets are choked with leaves.

    Great finds Becs. I only managed to find one disintegrating toadstool (I think it is??), so tried another macro.

    Jackson, we were in the Chelsea Centennial Reserve - the parklands that surrounds the Chelsea Sugar factory. Many 'shrooms there.

    I'm also told there are edible ones in good quantities in the Woodhill Forest (out West), but you need to do the research so you don't poison the whānau.
