Eye on the prize

I love the way this Rainbow Lorikeet was working the Golden Grevillea flowers at Hat Head the other day. I got out of the car and stood right beside this bird and it just kept moving steadily from flower to flower, sucking away at the nectar. Most of them will move discreetly away from humans but this one was so intent on the job that my presence didn't bother it at all. Gorgeous with the magnifier.
gorgeous crisp, sharp capture... just beautiful

@yonnie Thanks, Yvonne. They are the most common birds flying around here in great flocks; they just love all the native flowers.

Lovely capture of the hungry little birdy! They do this at my work too, but as you said, they flap away and hide if you watch them or walk too close...

Fantastic capture. I love these birds especially when they are all together making lots of noise.
