The blooms of Australia’s native shrubs and bushes are truly spectacular. And they are a magnet for birds and insects looking for a hit of wild sugar.

Noisy Friarbirds obviously got their name from their priestly looking appearance and loud preaching-like calls, announcing to all and sundry that the bush they are feeding on is worth visiting. Birds in flowering plants always makes for good photography, so while strolling among the flowering Grevilleas and Bangsia at Bangsia Beach on Bribie Island there was no way I was going to walk past a Friarbird posing in the flowers. The beauty of these plants is such that even a dull bird like this shines.

Aside from the friarbird, the stroll produced my first shots of White Cheeked Honeyeaters feeding on Bangsia blooms. But they will have to wait for another time as I want to go back with another lens to really do justice to the beauty of both birds and plants. Stay tuned!
