In my garden today …

I very nearly had a photo of a silver-eye bathing in the small top pond, but the sun shining on the window foiled my plans. This is why you aren’t seeing the cockatoos lately – too many reflections on the window glass throwing back into the lens.

I coaxed the lorikeets out of the tree with some apple, else I wouldn’t be able to show you those, either! They let me get quite close to them.

  2. Wow. That last shot of the bee is amazing. I do believe he feels embarrassed for his drunken behavior. 😀 😀
    The birds are magnificent. Love all that color. You live in some kind of paradise. Thank you for sharing. ❤
    Happy Valentine's. ❤

    I’ve only ever seen lorikeets in captivity… amazing to have them in your own garden!

      I’m still amazed – they only turned up a few years ago. There were two pair, but the others have settled elsewhere. I did see a small flock in town last year – foraging in a flowering gum tree, making a din! Thanks for dropping by RMW.

    Your beautiful photographs make me long for the return of flowers, birds, and insects to my frozen corner of the world.

      Can’t be long now until your spring? We are not long off autumn. I couldn’t imagine living in snow and ice. Brrrr.
