Another one from a couple of weeks ago. This is a common little white-eye here in Australia which has about 9 subspecies!
When I was shooting this one, there were 2 subspecies on the perches that I had set up - this is the nominate race lateralis.
Thanks for looking, Greg.

Greg, gorgeous image, love how you keep everything on the focal plane and prettily arranged.  The reds sparkle on the green BG and you've captured lovely subtle color variations on bird, excellent work.
