Red Wattlebird in West Australian flowering eucalypt

Can't imagine that the Wattlebird is after nectar in the pink flowering Gum Tree. Maybe he is chasing down small insects. This is the 82nd in my Birds-n-Bush portfolio.

Indian orchid, Australian hoya

Indian orchid – Australian hoya

Worked right through the night on this one. Wanted to catch it while the bloom was still on the plant. Back to bed. Oh well, there goes Tuesday. Not sure if it's missing something. Probably a bird or two. Shall find out when I take it over to the printers later this week to see the final, in hand – adjustment is a breeze on the Mac. Set against a golden cane palm, the orchid is Dendrobium pierardii and the hoya (Hoya nicholsoniae) is from northern parts of Queensland, Paupa New Guinea, and the Solomon Islands.
