Hi All,

I have been off work for a bit this week as I have a family member over from South Africa. We took her off to the Auckland Zoo yesterday, and although it was not a perfect day, it was nice to get out and see all my old friends at the zoo. This Rainbow-Lorikeet really wanted some attention. I think he is gorgeous.

I hope that you enjoy this one.

The head is gorgeus, chest is oversharp, common thing when taking lorikeet pics, i've done a few my self.

Excellent details & sharpness, perfect composition and great colours. Fantastic work! Well done, Erich

Hi Za,

The colors are just stunning, Eric. Good POV and great expression.
Maybe a tad oversharpened?
A beauty of a bird. TFS. : )

Hi Za,
The colors of this bird are really contrasted.
I like to see the weird red eye ; the framing is excellent with the head of the bird up in the picture.
The wings are perfectly sharp and the colors are incredibly vivid.
Bravo !
