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.

I am so jealous of this magnificent shot, two of my fav flowers and bird… brilliant shot
Thanks Minnie, sometimes I’ll have 30 or 40 moonflowers in flower, soooo beautiful but they only las the one night!
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.
