Every morning I hear these jewel coloured beauties flying around and greeting the morning with vigour. I had suspicions they were hanging out nearby. This morning I decided to go for a wander and check them out, to see if I could track them down.
Well I did track them down, they weren't hard to find, all I had to do was listen. I didn't even have to leave our street, as short as it is. They were just there, in the trees outside, in the trees around the corner as well as up the road.
They were feasting on flowers or nectar having a grand old time flitting from tree to tree, parading among the branches and completely enjoying a noisy, sweet breakfast.
They are such characters, they have attitude. They will be strutting around the tree like they are on a cat walk one moment and be hanging upside down and acting like clowns the next. I swear they are never still and certainly hard to get photos of among the leaves.
