Silvereye Surprise


After letting the cat outside in the afternoon sun, he started meowing at the tree in the corner.  I thought there was nothing there, but alas, a tiny silverye was feeding in our tree.

I headed back inside to grab a camera and lens, not expecting that the silvereye would still be present upon my return; but he was, and he seemed completely comfortable with me being within only a few metres of him.
