GET DOWN BEFORE YOU FALL DOWN! by 


New Holland honey eaters enjoying their bath and creating mayhem. They bathe two or three times a day and more when it’s hot. They love to plunge into water whereas other birds will only bathe in very shallow water. Taken in our garden Mount Pleasant, Sth. Australia.

Camera PowerShot SX 200 IS 12 x optical, 12 pix.

I guess you could call me a shutterbug, I am for ever looking for something to photograph, and experimenting with my camera. Colour lights up my life, children, scenery, the sea in all it’s moods,native flora & fauna etc:- Please feel free to browse through the categories in my profile.

    Hehe funny little chaps, they look like they’re having a ball! Gorgeous, animated image Rita!

  • They sooo love their bath, I have to make sure I keep up fresh water in this dish particularly. As you say Georgi they do have a ball and make such a noise as well. It is a delight to be able to please them. Thank you for your lovely encouraging comments. Rita.

    Oh, look at all those little birds, busy having a wonderful time..!!…..Love the title and the “concerned mum” on the left.!….How interesting that they like to plunge right in…Nice one Rita.

  • Thank you for your lovely comments Meg. It is lovely to watch them getting so much enjoyment. I find the only others who like to plunge are the tiny Yellow Rump Thorn birds. This is my deepest bird bath.
    Rita.
