The Rainbow Lorikeet

What is it?

Native to some parts of Australia. A brightly coloured gregarious parrot that feeds primarily on pollen, nectar and fruits, but will feed on grains. Almost always seen in pairs or in flocks, which can contain up to a thousand birds. Like most parrots they nest in hollow limbs or trunks of dead or living trees. They are prolific, with pairs known to rear as many as three successive broods in a single season thus enabling the population to increase rapidly. Rainbow lorikeets look very similar to the more common eastern rosella. The main distinguishing feature is the lorikeets' blue head.

Was in there for more then an hour with my son... we both are taking photos of the birds. :) when I spot this little fellow on the ground, I was so thrill as it walk closer to me, I should have waited a bit longer for it to come closer, but I didn't... and I didnt have second chance to change my mind... it flew away again. :(

What a colorfull gem Sweety! Looks excellent with this BG. I love its pose and face!

Hi Sweety, very beautiful parrot. So colourful. Very sharp and clear I like this very much. Exellent work.

Wonderful shot of this lorikeet Sweety,

Well named species, you have captured him beautifully, and I find that there was no need for you to change a thing.

Excellent colors, POV, lighting, and timing.


very clear and bright, sharp and full colours. THe only thing that disturbs my eyes is the ring on the right leg of the Lori. Anyway - great job!!!

Well captured Sweety,
Good detail and great POV. Nicely exposed. Well composed. good framing, good colours & good notes, thanks for posting.

Hi Sweety

Nice shot of the Lorikeet. Nice light giving good details. Well done on achieving good depth of colour. Tack sharp too. Good work. Thanks.

Beautiful colors on this bird, Sweety. The feather detail is nicely captured. I have become very fond of the lorikeet and wish it was one of our local species :-) Beautiful work :-)
