CommentThis Eastern Spinebill was feeding on a red Kangaroo Paw bed next to the red "desert" sandy central part of the Australia Garden at Cranbourne Botanic Gardens . The redness of the "desert" background has been intensified in Lightroom to complement the kangaroo paw. The image seeks to go beyond the original setting to create a strong and pleasing impression of both the bird in a characteristic pose and the beautiful Kangaroo Paws with their star-shaped flowers.
