Japanese white-eye on Japanese aloe

This week’s Friendly Friday challenge theme is ‘Mood.’ See more responses here. For me, mood elevation often comes in the form of interactions with nature. Anything from bugs to birds, fish to flowers, can leave me in a better mood.

I had been watching Japanese white-eyes visiting Japanese aloe flowers on a daily basis. But I was really happy to capture one, perching on a stem, with purple bougainvilleas in the background.

    That one brings the bird front and center even though the colors are still bright and beautiful. I couldn’t tell you which one I like better. That first one I saw knocked my eyes out!

      Thanks. The bird’s quite common here, but I liked how the white eye ring stood out and was intrigued by it’s behavior on the flowers.
