[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Rainbow Lorikeet is unmistakable with its bright red beak and colourful plumage. Both sexes look alike, with a blue (mauve) head and belly, green wings, tail and back, and an orange/yellow breast. They are often seen in loud and fast-moving flocks, or in communal roosts at dusk.
The Rainbow Lorikeet is found in a wide range of habitats including rainforest and woodlands, as well as in well-treed urban areas.

It forages on the flowers of shrubs or trees to harvest nectar and pollen, but also eats fruits, seeds and some insects.

Beautifully you see in this picture the variety of colors in the plumage of the bird. Wonderful to see.
Best Regards Sincap

Great photo and eye details.
The flowers are typical of a Eucalypt rather than a fig tree.
