I have made several attempts to photograph this behaviour, but today while waiting for a delivery, I was sitting outside my home near this grevillea, which is one of their favourites, when the bird came in to feed and I managed to capture this shot (it is not cropped).
EquipmentI use a Nikon D5300 camera with a 300 mm zoom lens
f 6.3, 1/800 sec, ISO 1250, aperture priority mode.
