Great shot, i miss these birds i dont see them around anymore.
Thanks – unfortunately we haven’t seen them around for a while – hoping they’ll re-appear when the next crop of figs arrive
Blessed – beautiful – what a capture!
Thank you – for both the comment and selecting as one of your favourites!!! It is one of my favourite images.
Half their luck!! Great shot!
Thank you! I do love this one myself – even more since it won a category at the local show!

Beautiful image and what pretty and intersting birds.
Aren’t they – it took us ages to identify what they were – they are so incredibly tiny and fast. Unfortunately we haven’t seen them since but then again the fig crop hasn’t been too good – crossing our fingers that we’ll get a bumper crop this year to entice them back.
Great capture !
and thank you again! We haven’t seen them around for a while but a baby showed up at our window late last night so hopefully we’ll see them in the garden through spring and summer …
Fantastic nature capture,,,,,what kind of birds are they??
Thanks for the favourite!
ps I dont know what silvereyes are!
Thanks! Silvereyes are like a small finch (I think) – they are absolutely tiny and incredibly quick …
Never been able to get this close. L-o-n-g lens? We have these in New Zealand too – got across the Tasman by themselves way back when. Good for keeping the greenfly under control. Neat shot.
Thanks Mike – not a l-o-n-g lense, 200 mm – took quite a long time standing very still and LOTS of shots to get this one. It is one of my personal fav’s.
