Two totally wild Rainbow Lorikeets sitting on the railing of my back verandah at Mt. Tamborine, Queensland. I loved the way they seemed to mimic each others pose.

The Rainbow Lorikeet (Trichoglossus haematodus) is a species of Australasian parrot found in Australia. The bright colours of blue, green, yellow, red and purple make this parrot one of Australia’s most colourful and popular birds. (description courtesy of Michael V)

Canon EOS 350D. Canon EF 70-300mmIS lens.

I am an avid photographer of 60+ and will shoot just about anything, although I’m not so good at moving objects. Anything faster than a snail leaves me for dead. (haha) I do prefer natural landscapes over urban ones but, really, nothing is safe from my lens. I also enjoy turning my failed images, and there are lots, into digital art.

In 2014 I started dabbling in Fractal Art using Apophysis 7x to satisfy my creative urges on the days when I can’t take photos.

    Awesome capture, Ann!!! You’re so lucky they dropped by!

  • Thank you Wendi. I used to feed them so there were always a few of them hanging around. Come morning there would be a large flock of very noisy Loris fighting over the dish of wet food.:)
