It looks like the Wax Eye is holding the apple up while the other contemplates eating at its leisure. This capture is a good example of friendship, giving a helping hand even if it is uncomfortable.

Information on Silvereyes

My fascination with birds began as a child and almost 50 years down the track my love for our feathered friends has not diminished. Once we moved to Tranquillity (our little country retreat) my passion for birds, all nature and wildlife became a digital reality through the lens of my camera.

    What an amazing sot! Do you suppose it really was holding the apple for its mate?

    Brilliant. Aren’t they delightful. I have about thirty or forty of these little sweeties visiting me every day in Invercargill. Too hard to count. And they eat just about anything I put out for them.

  • Thanks for your wonderful comment, I am in the same boat, I love watching them.
