My Treat

Blue-banded Bees are Australian natives and they act like normal bees on speed, for me to get a nice clear photo this afternoon was a real treat.

Careful

I don’t usually think of animals as being careful but this Eastern Spinebill certainly had to be very careful to get its long, curved beak down to the nectar in this small, tubular flower.

(Extra)ordinary

What could be more ordinary than a fly? Not much until you look at their features then you discover they’re extraordinary after all. Just check out the feet! The Cabbage White Butterfly has no fancy markings and no fancy colours but it’s still extraordinary.
