    Rainbow Lorikeet

    Coming from Scotland I am always amazed by the beautiful colour of these birds, this one was stripping open pods to access the nectar.

    Indeed, these birds are colorful and your capture shows that very well. The pod is not to shabby either.
    Nice timing on this.

    Nice shot Ann, particularly with that flower in there (which adds interest). About the only suggestion I have is to reduce the Highlights considerably to make the background less bright and give more focus to the main subject. Also maybe a tad more sharpening.

    Thanks Dave. Unfortunately I can't reduce the highlights - had a look and they are as low as my software allows. It was almost dark and I used the flash .... clearly too much flash ! As of today I am going to start wearing my glasses as every photo I take is not quite in focus.

    Hi Anne
    we have these Lorikeet nearly every afternoon in our garden too, but i also know, that they are mostly very hard to catch, because they are on the move all the time......

    Here is one of my photo

    Hi Griddi

    I agree, very hard to catch - he did not sit still for more that a few moments.
