Who's a pretty boy? by girlie

Who's a pretty boy?

The Rainbow Lorikeets are still partying in my Golden Penda. They're getting a little bolder now and allowing me to come a bit closer with the camera. This one had two lookouts posted in our nearby mango tree who shrieked a warning when they saw me creeping up the yard in the shadows. Got him just before he took flight.
wow ,our birds are so drab compared to the wonderful tropical ones there!!

Such wonderfully colourful b irds!

I think if I was there I could happily watch these all day!
What's the weather and conditions like now, Robin?
March 11th, 2013  
@dulciknit Thanks, Alison. Still showery and overcast but the heavy rain has moved away. We've pretty well cleaned up after the flood, but our summer certainly waved goodbye after Christmas. Still humid and warm enough to swim, though.

@girlie Must be a relief that the heavy rain's over and things are getting back to normal.
We seem to be going back to winter rather than forward to spring!

I just really can't imagine what it would feel like to see these in my yard!!
March 12th, 2013  
@lyno Thanks, Lyn. I imagine you would feel great joy, like I do. And they are so amusing that you would probably be chuckling a good deal while you watch them at their antics.
March 12th, 2013  
Oh, this is like from some fairy tail to me :) And thanks again for cheerful colours!

That pretty parrot again, how could you resist?!

Your birds just amaze me! Around here we consider a bluebird exotic! Is the water receding yet or are you still stranded at home?

I can never get enough of these bright birds - it always makes me think of fossil reconstructions of dinosaur era bird-prototypes - sparrow-grey or lorikeet-garish? Lovely!
March 17th, 2013  
Great capture!

Yesterday's and today's photos of the lorikeets are stunning, Robin. Not exactly low-profile birds, are they!
