Silvereye (Zosterops lateralis) is a small (10-12grams) bird found in most states of Australia including Tasmania. The Silvereye have also been sighted in New Zealand and even have a Maori name, Tauhou which means “new arrival”. These photos were taken a few years ago near Magic Point, Maroubra NSW.
The photo above was one of the photos exhibited in my solo photo exhibition Swapping the Stethoscope for a 400mm Lens. This photo was sold for $188 with the proceedings donated to Sydney Children Hospital Foundation. I consider this as one of the best Australian bird photos I have taken so far.

You can never take the same photograph twice;
Neither can you have the same feeling by viewing the same photograph twice.*
*A photograph may seem the same, but our mental state fluctuates every moment. Our appreciation and interpretation of the photos is very much influenced by our state of mind. Therefore it is unlikely that we would have the same feelings while looking at the same photo at different times. Inspired by the teaching of Impermanence.
