119/366: bird on a wire

The other day I was sitting inside at my laptop, probably working on my blog, when a flash of colour flew past the window and alighted on one of the wires coming to our house.

It was an attractive bird with red on its head and chest, with blue on its wings, cheeks and tail feathers, which I have now identified as a crimson rosella. Taking a photograph through glass is never as successful as being out in the fresh air, but at least I managed this shot before it flew away.

Since we had a bleak week weatherwise, it was a pleasant and colourful change to see.
