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

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!
