In the centre of a fountain stands a bronze cupid of old. A Noisy Miner landed on its hand. It was as if the sculpture had waited all this time for this bird and now had come alive. It smiled joyously at the visitor, full of mystery and whispered promises.

(Hard to believe my luck! The bird is real and not a montage.)
