Hanging out at all the local wineries are these brightly coloured birds… or at least the boys are brightly coloured, the girls can be a bit drab. For some reason I struggle to get a good photo of the boys, they seem to be very shy, and yet, I have many photos of the dull girls… luckily I was able to capture this one shot, so I had to paint it.
