From the sunroom

We are spending quite a bit of time in the sunroom at present as it is out of the direct sun for much of the day.  When it gets really hot we head up to the lounge and turn on the AC!

When I went down this afternoon Frances drew my attention to a Jacky Lizard on a stump in the garden bed.
With a tail that long it has to be a Jacky Lizard!

As is usual for this time of year, and despite the unpleasantness in February, the Red Hot Pokers (Kniphofia sp) are flowering well.  They are (also as usual) attracting Honeyeaters.

Noisy Friarbird
I have included this second shot of a Friarbird because it shows the yellow from the pollen so well. 
 An Eastern Spinebill: as usual this little blighter wouldn't stay still long enough to get a decent photo.
A Red Wattlebird turned up and flaunted its wattles until just before I pointed the camera at it.
