They do have amazing colours in their feathers which the flash has really bought out on this portrait. Looks as though he has lost his feathers around his neck. Good close-up and colour with feather detail.

Stunning colour in this shot Joe.
The detail in the feathers is very sharp but the beak gets a bit soft.
Do you have one of those AFs with a spot that you can move around the screen ?
I would have nmoved it to the bottom right here and concentrated the AF on the beak.
The rest would still have come out reasonably sharp too I think.
Where to direct the focus is a difficult choice to make sometimes,but generally,if you focus on the eye or beak you'll get a pretty good all over focus ... and the eye is very sharp here.
(The only awkward thing is the colour of the beak ... AF doesn't like those shades of red so much)
Really nice shot though.
Very well done.

Nice on Joe, super detail and wonderful colour. I hate it when they rip out their own feathers like that..

Beautiful profile of this cute Rainbow Lorikeet. Perfectg focus with very nice color clarity. POV and composition are great. Very well done.
Wow...now those are some amazing colors! Truely vivid and almost like jumping out of the monitor :)
This is a splendid portait of this beautiful rainbow lorikeet. I had the chance of seeing these one is real life when i visited the Portland zoo (i actually had one on my shoulder :)) so i know how amazing they look; you managed to capture that well here.
The flash brought out the best of the colors but it also gave you an impeccable BG - dark, but not black, with those interesting impression on hte right there. I think it really adds to the overall wonderful composition.
Bravo and TFS

Splendid capture! Wonderful bird!
Alive colors and excellent details.
I liked it green BG.
A real show of colors!
Thanks for sharing!
oh!!ça c'est de la couleur!!!
beaucoup de details dans les plumes,mais dis moi si je me trompe,il n'a pas de plumes ailleurs que sur la tête?
These are amazingly vivid colours caught by your good self here. Top focus on feathers and nice positioning.
I cant help noticing that it seems to be lacking its neck feathers, almost giving the " oven ready " look. Is this so? It is a phenomonon that I have seen a few times in tropical birds that are kept in captivity.
Keep up the good work.

Outstanding portrait shot with amazing colours and sharp details. Great use of flash lighting and against the darkish BG the Lorikeet stands out well. I like the intense look on its eyes. Superb exposure, DOF and POV. Very nicely composed. Kudos.

G day Joe
I know you have taken this for the colour in her feathers, which is beautiful and sharp (ashame about the softness in the beak). But would it be more of an interesting shot having the whole bird in frame? You could of emphasized on the obvious stress and boredem she could be in! This is why she has hardly any feathers. It’s a female because the males have blue coloured nostrils just above the beak
