Weekend visitors.....


Of all the birds that visit my back garden, the Rainbow Lorikeets are without doubt the most exotic, they really are so gloriously vibrant, no enhancement necessary. The Galahs are everyday visitors, the Lorikeets only pop in now and then..these two flew in yesterday morning for a feed of sunflower seeds, you can see how much they're enjoying them in the last two shots. As I inched nearer to get a close-up their heads popped up in unison to check me out, deciding I looked harmless enough :) they kept right on crunching. You can tell by their colouring whether they are male or females but these two stuck together so closely it was impossible to compare. I hope you enjoy this psychedelic flash from Perth, have a fab weekend, take care.....

  13. You are so lucky to have these birds visit you. I remember the first time I saw these birds was at Safari Park near San Diego and I was just blown away by their incredibly vibrant color. They are very special creatures.

  20. They certainly are the most colourful birds. I didn't know that they ate seeds I thought it was only nectar they ate.

  27. these must be the photos you said I'd appreciate and I do...immensely...I simply cannot imagine a world without color! And since the color would be there whether I could see it or not...I cannot imagine NOT being able to see color! I envy that you have such wondrous creatures to see right outside your windows and doors :)
