[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This photo was originally uploaded too small - so I thought I'd re list it at a larger size.
The Scaly Breasted Lorikeets normally live north of where I live, while the rainbow lorikeets seem to be all along the eastern coast of Australia (and I am sure beyond).
We were at Macksville on the New South Wales mid north coast visiting family - after a hail storm these birds were sunning themselves...

This is a very good portrait of a beautiful bird. IMHO, the only thing that is a bit distracting here are the flowers in front of it. I feel that the flowers take the attention away from the bird which is quite unfortunate. You 'squeezed' the focus well past the flowers and present the bird with excellent detail and sharpness. The lighting, and catch light in the eye is very good as well. Will we see more of this bird ? I hope so!

Best Regards,


This is a very brilliant bird. Too bad about the flowers though because they detract from what would otherwise be an almost perfect shot - still, an excellent attempt. I also like your notes and if you capture more of these, I'd love more info on them. :)

Hi Mark,

What a great tight portrait shot of this Scaly Breasted Lorikeet, excellent detail and colours in the plumage, wonderful eye contact to, nicely seen and captured,

Cheers Rick :)

Hi Mark,
Good focus with nice detail, color, & eye contact..
And you managed the light from the side/above well, it adds some depth.
I don't need to mention the other things :)
