A tiny Striated Pardalote rests on a moonflower in my backyard in Byron Bay. Moonflowers are a succulent which flower profusely around Christmas. The large, delicate blooms last one night and are dead by morning.

Many thanks for checking out my photos, please feel free to give feedback! My wanderings in nature and observations of birds, particularly raptors, is what gives me great joy and constantly reminds me of the beauty and strength of life. My favourites are raptors, I love their freedom, grace, ruthlessness, pride, adaptability and flexibility and I learn much about parenting, protection and blind faith from them.

    Yes I know as I have 2 plants. This year they gave me about 30 flowers for their second year of flowering, they are amazing. I sat up and took a sequence of shots about a min or so apart and did a slidshow of them, it turned out great showing the flower opening.
    This shot with the Pardalote on it… I didn’t know they were around at night, a great capture, is this the original as I would like to buy a print but I’m worried they may chop his head off being so close to the top of the picture.
