Brush wattlebird feeding

Brush wattlebird feeding
Brush Wattlebird enjoying a meal of nectar from a Banksia flower spike. With the Pentax, the focal length needs to be entered for manual lenses - I forgot to change it for this shot with the 100mm from earlier use with a 50mm, hence the wrong FL shown in the EXIF info.

Thank you to all who have given such kind comments. A few quick responses. These banksia flowers are commonly known as bottlebrush - there are several types, with variations in the flowers. I'll post a photo of one. I'll cheerfully admit to not having read or viewed Harry Potter, but yes, this is a real wattlebird. :) There also are others with that name (I'll get to another soon).
