I decided to call this guy Ralph..... he looks like a Ralph to me!
Ralph was just hanging out one afternoon in a neighbour's tree when we went to go for a walk. As we wandered by, he was making a lot of noise, like he was having just the best time, getting drunk on some sweet, sweet flower juice, on a sunny Sunday afternoon!!!
He was a little bashful and I thought maybe the camera shutter was making Ralph either nervous.... or he was being a little bugger and just running away from me, like he knew what I was trying to do!
I was fairly close to him but he had a friend that was wayyyyyyy up the top of the tree and hard to get a good view of (other than straight up his tail)!!
I followed Ralph for a while and the whole time he and his mate were both singing away and enjoying their juice!
This is Ralph between sips of the beautiful flowers on a flowering gum tree.
Apparently it's a dwarf variety of grafted eucalypt.
ENJOY your weekend :)
