Lorikeets are beautiful birds with amazingly brilliant colours on them, Ganesan.
You have captured one of the best specimens from the family during your visit to Singapore.
The image is technically sound. The bird stands out very against the bokeh BG.
Well done and TFS.

Looks like you visited fantastic place, full of wonders not only of nature, but also architecture. This Lory looks great in nice pose and with very saturated reds. I like it!

Hi Ganesh,
amazing vivid colour here, and very good DOF too - well done!

Hallo Ganesh
This is such a neat and colourful looking bird. The red and blue is such special colours and have an almost royalty to it. You have captured this bird with great detail and clarity. Here I especially refer to the clear visibility of the yellow at the edges og the beak and the sharpness of the beautiful blue circle around the red eye. Great stuff and thanks for this contribution.
Kind regards

Hi Ganesh Ji,
A nice capture of this beautiful lory bird. Superb details and a lovely composition. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hi Gannu,
Not Lorius lory.

This is an adult Eos bornea (Red Lory). Another name they have to change on their cages at Jurong!

Hello Ganesh,
Terrific capture of the Black-capped Lory that I expect was captured in the huge enclosure with the hang bridge - a great place! Very fine details and lovely bright colours. Great focus on the observant eye!
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Hello Narayanan,

This bird has very special colors and you have rendered them so well. I like the posture of the bird seeming to study something. The eye and the beak look very nice withe their vivid colors.

Thank you for sharing,

Hi Ganesh, what a beautifully coloured bird my friend! Great shot in all around. Have a nice weekend!
