Great shots, and lovely editing. I really like these photos. There's a certain natural appearance to them that stands out. The feathers are very nicely photographed here.

Some birds are more tolerant of humans or sometimes in mood to have their pictures taken. I have had a golden finch do to me once. I like your honey-eaters. BTW - Do they eat honey from the comb?

Thanks, the edited shot has raised questions from some friends as to the tounge that you can just see peeping out, do you think it looks like an editing mistake?

Great shots again Alady. The honey eaters look very like the ones that used to visit the garden of our previous home (New Holland Honeaters). The tongue of these birds is like a very, very small camel hair brush. I used to be able to see the brush tongue entering our nectar feeder when the lighting was just right.

The edited image looks particularly nice.

Obviously they are gutsy little creatures.
