Hanging for a bite to eat

This is a Rainbow Lorikeet, a chatty colourful bird found all over Brisbane. Coming from England where it seems like 95% of the birds are some shade of brown, the novelty of these birds just won't wear off. The colours are bright and strong like a kid's drawing.... and the flowers that attract them are equally flashy. This one's called a Grevillea.

Thanks to my friend Sandra for this photo which was taken recently in her garden in Grange.

Ah, fantastic shot by Sandra, Cara! I can never quite get them so clearly..they are always moving too fast for me and my camera!

Welcome back!
