New Holland honeyeater on grevillea


The New Holland honeyeater (Phylidonyris novaehollandiae) and grevillea were photographed in a suburban native garden. The additional benefits of magnification of the focal length to 450mm assisted in obtaining a detailed image. Post-processing of the image was in Photoshop CS5, with a Fractalius filter layer for all but the honeyeater.
