We spent an exquisite 2 months in Australia recently

These frenetic little birds hop between branches and bushes. If you're patient and fortunate, you might catch it mid-hop

I've been looking forward to your Australia images, and this one gets you off to a great start, Sandy! A lovely action capture of this very striking bird, the colours and detail are beautiful.
