The honey-eaters made me laugh out loud,
Only three but they sounded like a crowd!
Fluttering and chirping keen for that nectar to sip
The aloe vera flowers on a whippy 1.3 meter stick.
The battle eventually won
As one stood half-way on it in the sun
And drank from the lower flowers with fun
His weight bent the stalk over
Where his mates could sip
The higher flowers from the safety of my rail.
Mother nature’s ingenuity can’t fail
Then off they all flew with a flip of their tail!
the tiny honey eaters are too skittish for a photo
so this is one of the larger honey eaters that are enjoying the nectar of my flowers
