Artist's Description

I don’t often photograph birds – they are usually way too fast for me! (I’m kinetically challenged – anything that moves faster than the moon or the stars is a major problem for me lol).
Anyway one of the brilliant things about where I live is that we are on a Rainbow Lorikeet superhighway. All day these amazing birds zing back and forth across my yard on exactly the same diagonal trajectory. So I took to feeding them and man was that an experience! At one stage my daughter counted 87 of them on my balcony and this tree waiting to be fed. Talk about a full-colour version of Hitchcock’s “The Birds”.
And then those bastard white cockatoos got in on the act and swooped down in a bunch of about 10 and stood over the Rainbows. Feisty little critters though – even though the white cockatoo mobsters were 5 times their size I saw a couple of these little fellas going for them.
I’ve got some shots but my backyard looks so crap in the background I’m too embarassed to post them.
