What incredibly colorful birds, lorikeets are. You got a couple of beautiful shots of them.

Thanks very much Mike!

I had the macro lens on my camera when the Rainbow Lorikeets visited today, so I took some shots with it. It's nice to have wild birds that let you approach close enough to get shots like this!

Magnificent parrot.
Seems a slender bird,
Lovely setting.

Thanks Richard, it was also unusual to see so many of them together. I don't see them very often and when
I do it's usually just two or three together; yesterday there'd have been about twenty pigging out on those figs.

Gorgeous shots pippan. Those birds have so much color...they're quite pretty.

Thanks Mike, they are so pretty, and not often seen either. I was lucky ...

Nice. He looks grumpy. He should be, cruel trick of evolution that he has to be so bright blue which in turn makes him such an easy target.

Awesome shot, Stephen.


Thanks very much guys! I thought I was being lazy by not changing lenses but the 100L looks like it beats the 70-200f/4L in terms of sharpness and detail (as it should I guess!)

Cheers,
Stephen
