I recently talked at the Birdlife Photography Conference in Perth, Western Australia and managed to get a few days of birding in as well. This bird is endemic to the southwest corner of Australia and was one of my targets. Very happy to have gotten it :)

As always for you, this is of the highest standards for a bird image! The colors, BG, detail and flowery perch all add up to a perfect image.

Getting as target bird is always a plus. Getting one in the perfect setting is a bonus. Beautiful!
