Visitor

This beautiful Rainbow Lorikeet dropped in for a visit, fixing me with its beady red eye, willing me to succumb and give it a handout. Some of them do the rounds of the neighbours' houses each morning but I won't feed them. They usually have to settle for my bottlebrush trees or next door's mandarins.
Instant FAV. This rainbow lorikeet is so gorgeous.

@sarasdadandmom Yes, Terry. They shriek and cackle and chuckle very loudly while they're flying and eating (which is always). A bottlebrush tree full of lorikeets is very noisy. Our tree is lined with bottlebrushes and they are in them from early light, all year round. I love them.

What brilliant colors and lovely sunlight. Just wanted to thank you for your comments and insight on my shots thru the year. I'm doing year 2 but with less vigor. I appreciate you sticking with me for so long. : )

Beautiful! My kids only see colorful birds like this at the local aquarium or zoo. They would flip out if they visited daily for handouts at our home!

Love it!

Wonderful color.
November 16th, 2012  
Fabulous shot! Probably best not to give them handouts - I imagine they would become very persistent and bothersome if you ever started!

Stunning capture, fav

Fantastic capture! I love the wonderful colors and details! Our zoo posted a pic of their Lorikeets on a jack-o-lantern at Halloween. It made me think of you. I can't wait to go back to the zoo and see them in person! Fav! :0)
