I had some great insect shots for this challenge but went with this noisy miner just for something completely different ..!!.. ;)

the jacaranda flowered and the noisy miners were loving the flowers as they are honeyeaters .. i thought i had days to get a photo .. but we got extremely heavy rain and hail which knocked the flowers off the tree .. so i only got a couple of photos ..

wikipedia info on the noisy miners

after voting ..
i'm blown away that this did so well .. thankyou so much .. xx

I love all of this, Roz!

The rain drops just add icing to a beautiful cake.

This is charming because of its lovely bright colours. Congrats on the ribbon.

Your Jacaranda are flowering now? How odd - ours flower in November :-).

Looks very painterly, The Jacaranda really pops.
You shoot birds just as well as insects.

This was my equal top pick (along with Margaret's star trails). It is really pretty.

I had this tied with Mark's geese as my pick for the blue.

The bird is just an accent to the overall beauty of the image.

Roz, I love this!! The crisp sharp bird juxtaposed with the gentle falling rain and soft flowers are just beautiful. You also pulled off a centered composition perfectly! I was one of your very high marks. Congratulations on your ribbon!

PS - thank you for the lovely comments and poem on my bird photo!
