I thought I had finally managed to photograph the elusive Olive Thrush. I had seen it around my garden for a while now, but it always flew away before I could take its picture. Then I saw it on my stoep. I grabbed my camera and from 10 metres back inside the house, with maximum zoom, I tried my luck. I couldn’t get any closer because my dog, Little Monkey, was right by the door, and any movement on my part would have resulted in instant investigation by her. So this was the result. Bum Cheeks!
