Vividly colored, rowdy and greedy for the sugar in flowering shrubs and plants, the Rainbow Lorikeet is a familiar sight and sound on the Australian far north coast.

Many thanks for checking out my photos, please feel free to give feedback! My wanderings in nature and observations of birds, particularly raptors, is what gives me great joy and constantly reminds me of the beauty and strength of life. My favourites are raptors, I love their freedom, grace, ruthlessness, pride, adaptability and flexibility and I learn much about parenting, protection and blind faith from them.

    What a great shot I love the colors and the way the Bird looks like he’s playing Peek-a-boo with you.

  • Many thanks, they’re very hard to photograph, hard to get close!
