MtLawleyShire’s Flame Tree

Here are a few more flame tree flowers with birds. They didn’t make it into my last post, as they weren’t quite ‘golden’ enough for the Weekly Photo Challenge: The Golden Hour

Wattle birds in scarlet flowers against the blue of sky:

And here are the singing honey eaters – they and the wattle birds were fighting and flying the whole time, making it very difficult 🙂

I love these two – perhaps not quite as clear as they could be, but they are wonderfully ‘oriental’.

    • Thanks – I love taking them (though my shoulders & neck end up aching & I literally stop the traffic!). I was wondering whether your trees were in flower as well 🙂
