Profile of a Rainbow Lorikeet


We are fortunate to have rainbow lorikeets visit our property numerous times on an almost daily basis.

They particularly love to feed on the grevilleas during the warm light of the late afternoon or early evening.

Capturing a clean image of highly active rainbow lorikeets is particularly challenging, but with this image, after many attempts, I captured a pleasing image of one of these stunning birds when it was perched high and away from the foliage.

With bird photography, it is not only a matter of being in the right place at the right time with the right equipment, but it is also a matter of patience and perserverence.
