Superb scarlet

Warm spring weather and the Scarlet Honeyeaters are starting to arrive in numbers as we move into the peak flowering period for many of their favourite food plants. At present they are focused on the grevilleas as it is a little early for the bottlebrush flowering. I watched males and females dart from one grevillea to the next but found it difficult to get a  good shot despite some 20 odd photos. Parts of plant in the way, head turned the wrong way, shadows, movements etc but did get one that was reasonable as a male landed on a "Superb" Grevillea (hybrid).
