Chocolate party 1

I was having a break from snapping flowers in Wellington, New Zealand and enjoyed a bit of chocolate cake. And so did these cheeky sparrows who couldn't wait to peck at what was left over! I nearly dropped my beloved Nikon D40 when I saw the tongue pop out!

NOTE: chocolate is poison to birds. These birds are regulars at a cafe in Wellington and the cafe owners told me they can't control the birds but clear the tables ASAP to minimise them getting hold of chocolate. I took about 6 photos before remembering the chocolate issue, then stopped to shoo them away.
