CommentI am quite certain that this particular wattlebird returns each day to feast on the bottlebrush nectar. Each day there is normally a kafuffle with the honey eaters, games of chasey provide amusement. I like this shot as there is no distraction behind the bird, but its favourite habitat, the bottlebrush, frames it nicely. The symmetry in the feather detail appeals whilst the bird look provided a connection for me. No hide or camouflage, just camera in hand whilst having coffee on the back porch.
