CommentCaught in the Act
The purpley/pink flowering tree in the backyard was usually covered with flowers, except last year when the flowers ended up carpeting the ground underneath. I was worried the tree might be diseased. However, the culprit is before you. Caught in the act is an Eastern Rosella. He and a friend were eating the flowers, but not very efficiently. Most ended up dropping below. I love his cheeky expression, the detail of his colourful feathers against the purpley/pink of the flowers - and that the puzzle was solved.
