I happened to have the camera in my hands, ready for action, when I saw this Noisy Miner (Manorina melanocephala) with its face in my apple tree. It flew away as soon as it noticed my presence.

I’d gone outside to photograph this dragonfly-like insect which had landed on the mozzie screen at the kitchen window:
