Searching for nectar

By Ycmah
This afternoon, while visiting the Royal Botanical garden (Sydney), I found this little fellow perched on a branch of blue agapanthus, busily searching for nectar. It was an Australian "noisy miner" common around east coast.
The miners are fond of of dangling up-side-down when foraging the flowers for nector. I hope you like it.

This is great, Simon. The stalks of the plant must be quite sturdy to support birds this big.
