Wrestling Lorikeets

These two rainbow lorikeets were wrestling on the back lawn this afternoon. Quickly grabbed the camera and got a couple of shots in (on the wrong settings). By the time I changed the settings, they had stopped
The colours of these birds are so vibrant. Looks like one has the advantage here….

Brilliant, a bit of a domestic maybe, or just male rivalry.

Or maybe just a playful fight?? Great capture :)

Great action shots. It's good to see that they are not just nasty to other birds :)

Glad you had the camera handy, you can't schedule dust-ups between party colored birds ~ they just happen. GOOD CATCH!

Play nice now, Kids! Geesh, even the wildlife gets rough with each other. Bad behavior they've likely picked up from watching humans behaving badly. You were definitely quick with the camera tho.

Wow great catch

Great catch Poppo. I often see Magpies displaying similar behaviour with their young, maybe someone needs to be taught a lesson here :)

What a terrific time to be in the right spot - this is so neat! Besides their gorgeous colors, their behavior here is a riot! Love the shot.

Lorikeets are beautifully colored and this is a really quick, opportune capture! Nicely done, Terry.

I love rainbow lorikeets, their colours always amaze me. You've captured a great moment, even if your setting were wrong!

"I'm prettier!" "No I'm prettier!" "Hey, there's that creepy human with the camera again - the one who photographs lizards!" "We're both prettier than those awful things!" "You're right - the heck with him, let's get outta here."
