Bathtime by onewing

Bathtime

These two rainbow lorikeets were having a whale of a time in the bird bath. They were in there for ages and had a really good soaking.

In a bit of a rush at the moment as we are out for dinner again tonight. I will try and catch up later tonight.

Thanks to everyone who commented on my photos yesterday.

@andrewkru @flyrobin @beryl @thistle Thanks so much for the comments and favs. and for those in the UK glad to see this shot has brightened up the grey days. I well remember the greyness of winter. Luckily we don't get that here much.

@lan Thanks.

@888rachel Thanks Rachel, they were in there for ages and I think one of them was practicing for the Olympics, he was swimming up and down.

@paulaw Thanks Paula. Have to admit, not been in much lately, well apart from our regular wine tasting barbeque which was at our house this time. At least I have got a freezer full of ready made meals now since my batch cook a few days ago, so even when I am in not much work is required.

@hermann @darthkitty Thanks Sally and Kat, I had to fill the bird bath up again when they had finished, they had such a good time and water was flying everywhere.
December 17th, 2014

This is just adorable, Babs! And so much fun. You really had me giggling. Fav of course
December 17th, 2014  
How amazing to have these birds in your garden. I even wondered if they were real at first!
December 17th, 2014  
Wonderful action shot Babs, lovely detail, colour and focus;)
December 17th, 2014  
Wow Babs, what a rare sight that is.....such beautiful birds, we never see anything like this! I seem to remember reading it was you who weren't celebrating Christmas much this year.......you have been celebrating for weeks now, off out all the time!! Fave!
December 17th, 2014  
Truly amazing, beautiful birds! I've seen these birds before on 365 and they are so prettyl! In the US we have parakeets but not in the wild, just as pets.
December 18th, 2014  
@creampuff @gamelee @neatz @sioux @seattlite @derekvickers Thanks so much. We had to fill up the bird bath again after these two had finished. ha ha.
December 18th, 2014  
@_catherine_ Thanks Catherine, they are so much fun to watch. This one was in there for ages and really swimming up and down. I think he was trying to impress his friend on how good he could swim.

@dolphin Thanks Molly, we are so lucky to get so many colourful birds in our garden. I think the most rainbow lorikeets we have had in the garden at any one time was 53. The only way I know that is because I took a photo of them and then counted how many there were. I think they were having a party.
December 18th, 2014  
@pcoulson Thanks Peter, the rainbow lorikeets are really the entertainers in our garden. They just love the attention they get and even land on our hand to be fed.
December 18th, 2014  
@happypat Ha ha thanks Pat. Yes the lead up to Christmas has been a bit hectic here party wise. We normally have a lot of social occasions though regardless of the time of year. As far as a non-Christmas is concerned, we are having a quiet Christmas here by ourselves this year. The last few years have been a bit drastic and sad as far as Christmas Day goes, so we need some time out from that day this year and probably time to recharge our energy batteries too,
We will see Deb and the grandchildren in the New Year.

OOOOOhhhhh soooo fantastic!!! What an awesome shot! Huge FAV
December 18th, 2014  
Wow....awesome shot! Fav!
December 18th, 2014  
Fav, fav, fav. ,
December 18th, 2014  
This is great - fav -wonder what would happen if you did a close crop on just the one in the bath?!!
December 18th, 2014  
This is such a lovely scene - these birds are so exotic to european eyes. Excellent work.
December 18th, 2014  
Awesome capture! I love their creepy red eyes!
December 18th, 2014  
I love the wet bird look! It would be fun to have such colorful birds in the garden. I can't imagine having 53 of them at once. fav
December 18th, 2014  
Fantastic capture. Fav.
December 18th, 2014  
Oh, look at them! Splish splash, I was taking a bath ... They are so colorful and cheerful, what a treat on a cloudy, grey day!
December 18th, 2014  
@eyesmile @kwind @chimfa Wow, thanks so much for the favs. I think we tend to take these birds for granted a bit as they are such regular visitors. It was just that this one seemed to be in practice for swimming in the Olympics he was in there so long.
December 19th, 2014  
@quietpurplehaze Thanks for the fav Hazel. I will give your suggested crop a go.
December 19th, 2014  
@vignouse Thanks Richard. they are such regular visitors we are so lucky to have so many bright and cheerful birds here.
December 19th, 2014  
@tabbycat Thanks Tabitha. I suppose their eyes do look a bit creepy.
December 19th, 2014  
@birdy Thanks Lois, 53 of them did get a bit noisy and they were all squabbling over the food.
December 19th, 2014  
@snoopybooboo Thanks for the fav Tony.
December 19th, 2014  
@kchuk Thanks Elyse, they are such fun to watch.
December 19th, 2014
