Well framed subject!

Merci et au revoir...JP

This is a nice shot with great color. I do think your shutter speed was too slow for the movement of the Lorikeet. It sounds like a nice park with lots of photo ops.

Magnifique jeu de couleurs dans les verts et rouges, superbe composition.
Nice capture! I see that the bird is not really sharp.. I did some photos of some lorikeets a few days ago as well, but I have been in trouble with my no IS lens. I see that you have the same problem shotting your 300. Am I right? I was thinking about Canon, Sigma and Tamron before to buy my lens and I understood that there are not great differences if we don´t compare to a IS lens... well, a expensive IS lens...
I think we must shot with lots of light and higher ISO to set high speed, or a tripod.

Un joli camouflage pour ce joyeux oiseau.

Whata alovely bird you have here. Slightly off-sharp although the foliage in front of it is pin sharp. Try setting your camera on 'spot' metering and focus on the eye. This would also put the eye in the centre of the photo so it would make it look as though the bird had some space to go - forward. You may need to crop a little after.
You are certainly where there is some colourful nature to photograph. TFS.
Keep it up.
