Overheated Eastern Spinebill

Eastern Spinebill

I usually consider myself lucky to get a photo of these little birds. They’re so quick and flit from flower to flower with their tails up at a perky angle. I love to watch them hovering like Hummingbirds but have never managed to catch the moment.

This afternoon I spotted this poor little Spinebill sitting on a bird bath looking very unhappy. It allowed me to get within a couple of metres so I was able to spray it gently. It’s been very hot all day, it’s now almost 5:30 in the evening and still 45 deg. C.

I’m a sister, wife, mother, grandmother, auntie and friend. I prefer to be outside and am interested in photography, nature and different cultures. I believe everything on this earth has a right to be here but some things and some people would be happiest if their space was far away from mine. (Flies and biting bugs take note!) I don’t like housework and think dust is Nature’s way of saying, “This is my space, I was here first.”

So, what do you think?
