I was on the phone this afternoon when a Fantail which was flying around outside the cottage flew to within a foot of my face to catch some insect invisible to me. It's not the first time that a Fantail has come so close but the moment was no less magic for that. After, he (or one of the three who were cavorting around) alighted on the fence. They do alight but are rarely still enough long enough to enable a photo to be taken.
