Out shone

The Grevilleas in the garden are in full bloom and the birds are making the most of the ample supply of nectar. On of the showiest is the Grevillea "Flamingo" a hybrid crossed from two other hybrids G "Moonlight" and G "Superb". The photo is of the "Flamingo" with a male Superb Blue Wren in his uncoloured plumage, so he represented no competition to the flower spike, where as in breeding plumage it would be a riot of colour contrasts.
