Aphid Feast

As evening approached, I observed a number of Silver Eyes zipping around a Liquid Amber.

These birds would stop momentarily to collect food on the smaller branches.

On closer inspection I was able to determine that they were in fact collecting aphids.

The following photo is of an Aphid adult laying eggs, with some of the juvenile form visible next to her.

A Lewin's honey eater was also taking part in the feast. The loss of leaves providing easier pickings.
