Short but sweet

Today was apparently the shortest day for 2014. I’m certainly looking forward to a little more daylight over coming weeks … even a few minutes is appreciated.

This Eastern Spinebill was snapped fuelling up on nectar from our garden Grevilleas earlier today. It requires a sustained effort at this time of year to make the most of the time available for feeding.
