Description: Photo taken with Canon IXUS 80 IS and edited with Lightzone. SIMPLICITY is my niche! Image captured August 2011 in my garden in Brisbane QLD Australia.
One member of a group of Rainbow Lorikeets feeding on the nectar of grevillea flowers in my garden. These birds are Australian native parrots. Beautiful and comical they may be, but they're noisy little buggers! I wouldn't have it any other way though. I'm very pleased with this photo. I think it's the soft light that makes it work well. The other photos taken at the time were too blue, but this was from a different angle and was a one-off capture :D
