Silvereye on bottlebrush

A small flock of Grey-breasted Silvereyes Zosterops lateralis discovered the bottlebrush flowers today and dashed from flower spike to flower spike collecting nectar. They range through Eastern Australia in habitat from coastal heath to forest understory and tend to be somewhat migratory through their range.
Also found a Common Jezabel with its upper wing surfaces on show as it rested on a gum leaf, so added it to show the contrast to the photo posted a couple of days ago.
