Red Lory Eos bornea

Lories are popular companion birds and are quite easily bred. They are entertaining birds, with many unique behaviors. Some have been known to wrap up in a wash cloth for sleeping. At times, they will sleep on their back, with feet straight in the air. Very intelligent and trainable, they can be taught tricks and can be trained to eliminate in a certain area, on cue. Playful by nature, lories appreciate many toys, including ropes, bells, balls, and swings with variety being the key. They can, however, become quite possessive of their toys, and are capable of delivering a painful bite if their territory and possessions are not respected.

In the wild, lories feed on nectar, pollen, fruits, and the occasional insect. All lories have a tongue that is specially adapted with a brush-like tip composed of elongated papillae. This feature enables the birds to collect pollen from flowers and compress it into a form suitable for swallowing. They play a major role in the pollinating or trees and flowering plants in their native Indonesia coastal and mountain forests.

sharpness on the face.

Hi Stephanie,
wow - I've never seen such a red bird.
So brilliant colour, even the eye is red.
Excellent shot, I also like the pose.
Do they fly in wild nature? Here in Germany we also have a red bird, a kind of finch, I was proud to capture it last winter.
Thanks for sharing yours, bye

Hi Stephanie,
Good portrait picture. Beautiful colors. Good composition, but just a little to tight for the bottom (a foot is cut).
Regards, Francois

If I had to summarize with one word, shining.

Hi Steph,
This is a beautiful capture of this really red bird :-) You caught great details with excellent POV and nice expression form the bird. Like other already said, this crop is a little tight but this is a very nice picture anyway :-) Thanks,

I would give anything to own one of these. I own a few.
Mine talk English & Portuguese.(Different spieces.)
Your notes are very educative. The composition has EXCELLENT clarity. Great POV & DOF.
Best regards,

Hi, Stephanie.
Nice bird. Good sharpness and exposure. The only thing for me is that I want these legs to fit in. Otherwise nice.

Beautiful photography with great composition and contrast BG/bird. But what is most intresting here is color. This bird is really amazing, this red color is so clean. Great job.
