I noticed while observing these birds, that a lot of the time, they would fly directly into the nesting shrub. But sometimes they would land in the shrub adjacent to it, as it is doing in the image. Even when they arrive with their beaks busting with insects, they would fly up from this shrub to catch another one. This is how I got the majority of my shots.
I also noticed, that the amount of work they put in to feed their young ones, left them looking a bit dishevelled, which is quite understandable really.

Wonderful image Peter! These beautiful little birds are so tiny and flit about like busy bees, so well done to get these superb shots.

Great pose and the food for the chicks adds to it. Nice to have a reliable photo opportunity like this.

The information is as interesting as the image. Gorgeous b/g color to really show off the bird. Stunning image.
