It's spring, and lots of Scarlet Honeyeaters are in my front yard at the moment taking advantage of the blooms.

Thanks! We are keeping these all to ourselves over here on the east coast. They are great little birds.

Thanks. They are attractive birds, but really tiny, so I often have trouble simply following them around the foliage, let alone getting a lucky shot off.
