[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is the beautiful Rainbow Lorikeet (Trichoglossus haematodus), a bird native to Australia. Lorikeets are funny to watch, as they are brightly coloured, have attitude, and sometimes literally get "drunk" on nectar.

Hi Claudia.
Wonderful bummm colors, great sharpness, details and colors, very nice pose, point of view and composition, is a beautiful close up.

Thanks and I wait more photos , comments , tips and critiques.


Hi Claudia
What a beautiful photo.
Full of colours and contrasts.
The parrot's chest looks like a solar explosion, whilst its head is a cool blue, with that ring of fire around the eye.
A really excellent photo.
Thanks for sharing



Wow what a gorgeous photo. Lorikeets are definitely wonderful characters and I think you've captured that here in this photograph.

It's amazing how close it is. You can see the amazing detail in it's eyes, feathers and beak. Great clarity here, and the colours are just wonderful. Superb photo! :)


Hi Claudia,
Very nice capture. Colours just pop off of my screen. Excellent exposure and good placement against the dark BG. Really enhances the colours.
