These New Holland Honeyeaters are one of the most common birds of the Esperance region. They are shy and fast moving. They love feasting on banksia flowers and other native flowers like bottlebrushes. I have been watching them for weeks in my backyard, enjoying their company. This artwork was based on a recent visit to a local wetland called Lake Monjingup - which in November was surrounded by a sea of flowering Banksia Speciosa - or Showy Baksia. My talented photograper partner Jay took many photos on this day - which I used for my references. I wanted this painting to express joy and harmony - and to be a reminder of spring and the beauty of nature surrounding us. We have so many special birds and plants in this region of the world.
