A Silvereye attracted to a slice of mandarin orange pinned to a fence. Better be quick before the ants find it. A piece of ripe fruit put out on the fences brings these little guys around; one of the tribe always seems to want to claim exclusive rights to the food, showing dominance with a flutter of the wings but the others nip in for a taste while the bossy one is chasing someone away or the display is going on.

Time to shoot a few snaps but still - Rather short of time at present with study and work but having a look at everyone's splendid images when I can.
