I got stuck at home this morning - it was rainy. Later the rain stopped for 1-2 hours. Looking from the lanai I discovered a White Tern above the pool area. I have seen them many times there but didn't believe they are going to lay an egg there - the branch is rather narrow. But they did! And the chick is freshly hatched.

Great shot Alan!
You never know when you might come across a photo opportunity and I always have a camera with me which is why I like lightweight gear.

Beautiful series, ISv.

After the rain yesterday it was kind of feeding frenzy here...
First 3 are Japanese white eye and Common Waxbill feeding on the flowers of Rainbow Eucalyptus (I posted the first photo because... well I just like that eye above the flowers :)!) After that Red-whiskered Bulbul feeding on the endemic Kokio Hibiscus (or just looking for insects around the flowers) and finally a House Finch decimating a cactus fruit.
