I goofed and posted my first try in my other blog CASSANDRIC. Never mind, I enjoy showing my tinies as much as the next hopeful—
—and if you are having problems getting ‘tiny’ from this, the tint is the dot to the right of the crossy bit atop this copper steeple. I saw nothing at the time but when I displayed on screen immediately noticed the dot.
Intrigued, I fiddled around with it in Photoshop trying all sorts of tweaks and conniptions, and ended up no wiser but with this—
—so I sent both images to the NZ ‘UFO’ folks. Eventually I got a grudging response (persistence pays, it seems) and the rather unsatisfying “We think it may be a bird”. Yeah, right. Moving along in the bus—
—you don’t get much tinier than this.
Okay … bug on the stem. Gotcha~!
And birds don’t come much tinier than this whiteye. Waxeye. Silvereye. Bird. Native to New Zealand they flew over from Australia (we are told) or blew across on a breeze. Only twelve-hundred miles … native means (I read somewhere once) “without human help”. Be warned if ye be judgemental: that was a small apple …
AND NOW, TO CLOSE
An olde English saying—
—from might acorns, tiny oak trees grow.
Hardly … don’t get me started …
