Tui cheerful

I love sketches:





and I used this to make an Analogous Colours (colours next to each other on the colour wheel)Cardswap card.

Tui is an iconic NZ bird with an amazing array of calls (including local dialect)which are so cheerful.  Tui is a nectar feeder and the stamp shows it feeding from a flax flower.   NZ gets its black and white sporting colours from Tui.  It is a forest bird that looks black with two white curly feathers at its throat until it is in the sun, where it is black with an iridescent blue-green sheen to its feathers.
