CommentI watched this New Holland work its way along a row of Kangaroo paws, I managed to get a few shots, but most had flowers or stems in the way. I never quite realized before how well their beak is shaped to fit the flowers. He had an great feed, I could see nectar dripping from his beak, and pollen all over the feathers on his face. He got to the end of the row and gave me a resentful look as if to suggest I was somehow responsible for there being no more. Maybe not the best pic of the day, but Like the expression, the flower head gives a bit of balance, although I think it s a bit too central (or symetrical?).
EquipmentNikon D500 + 200-500 zoom. No real post processing at the moment as my laptop is out of action so I don't have access to lightroom.
LocationHarvey dam, WA, Western Australia
