Rainbow Lorikeets, very beautiful (but occasionally crabby) birds… can’t move for the buggers out in the wild here in Australia 🙂 In fact I have one as a pet. Don’t be complacent, they have sharp beaks 😉
Beautiful photos 🙂

Love the Rainbow Lorrikeets: I live in Melbourne, Australia and feed a posse of around 20 in my garden (pears, grapes and apples) every night.
11/21/2011 at 00:10
that’s too cute. Amazing photographs as well.
11/21/2011 at 00:08

11/20/2011 at 22:41
gorgeous pics, dig the one of the three lorikeets
11/20/2011 at 22:22
I have a rainbow Lorikeet myself, and she loves a good cuddle. She pokes her head at you for a scratch and rubs her face down you if you arent giving her the love she wants.
11/20/2011 at 22:08
These photos are breathtaking!
11/20/2011 at 21:55
11/20/2011 at 20:14
GREAT shots!! I especially love the vibrant hues 🙂
11/20/2011 at 19:38
Such beauty, the Lorikeet. One of my near and dear’s.
Thank you! Stunning.
11/20/2011 at 19:04
Awwww… ❤ I've always wondered why they do that
11/20/2011 at 18:18
11/20/2011 at 19:05
Gorgeous pics! Those birds are just stunning!
11/20/2011 at 17:45
So nice. How did you get such rich colours? And focused on a close up? My photos never look like this, they are always blurry. Love these 🙂
11/20/2011 at 17:43
Lol with these guys I had to roll with full manual focus because they are quick. 🙂
11/20/2011 at 18:58
That is adorable. It is kind of amazing to look at.
11/20/2011 at 17:37
people must respect and protect a so lovely nature…
11/20/2011 at 17:20
11/20/2011 at 15:37
Fabulous pictures! The colors are so vibrant and the birds are so close I feel like I can touch them. Wow!
Awwwww, love this
11/20/2011 at 15:11
Amazing photos! Wow! Where did you take them? Costa Rica?
11/20/2011 at 14:45
wow – good pics!

Smiles to stir-
With much bird color.

Such a heartfelt picture. The colors draw you in too – very inspiring. Amazing how nature always manages to get it right.
11/20/2011 at 12:58
11/20/2011 at 12:34
I love that pic!!
11/20/2011 at 12:25
Great photos! I love how animals can be so human 🙂 Outside my house, when I look through my window, I see some birds, and sometimes it seems like they’re a family! I really like when they look like they were hanging out together and the way they treat the others… Maybe, one day, I will see people acting in a good way. Just like them.
11/20/2011 at 11:51
OMG!!! I think I need to go buy three pet birds right now! I can’t handle it!
11/20/2011 at 11:32

“I like those three pictures. Love, J Herman in Michigan, Apt 2026”
I brought up my WP dashboard and left to finish unloading the dishwasher. When I came back, my almost-six-year-old with high functioning autism had your beautiful pictures up on the screen. He really enjoyed them. Thank you!
11/20/2011 at 09:50
Really glad to hear he loved them. 🙂
11/20/2011 at 10:47
Wow Marc J., I can only take a deep breathe and feel thankful that amazingly talented people like yourself are willing to share…
11/20/2011 at 09:26
Truly beautiful photography here Marc, congratulations on getting pressed, it was well deserved! 🍀
11/20/2011 at 07:48
The macaw photo is so powerful, totally humanises the bird. I don’t know how but you’ve taken photos that are almost like a perfect personality shot of the birds, simply amazing. Love Love Love.
11/20/2011 at 07:44
Wow! Amazing pictures.
11/20/2011 at 07:13
Birds are such amazing creatures…highly under-estimated. I love these photos. The top one really catches the essence of the bird!
11/20/2011 at 06:00
Aww, group hug! Reminds me of my kissing pigeons: http://shoshanaphotos.wordpress.com/2011/10/03/a-love-story/

Great and lovely pictures with the “Awww, so cute” factor 🙂
11/20/2011 at 00:23
The net has truly brought us all together … some sharing the beauty of God’s many creations and the others drinking it all in. Thanks…After so many people appreciating your pictures …my comment sounds like a repitition …but meant all the same..
11/20/2011 at 00:04
So gorgeous!!! It makes me want to go to a zoo and get crafty!
11/19/2011 at 23:13
Wonderful photography,truly enjoy your work.
11/19/2011 at 23:00
Fantastic photos! I love the one where the two birds are hugging the middle bird. Unbelievably adorable. Thanks!
11/19/2011 at 22:58
Aww i used to have a pet lorikeet that acted like a cat – he’d come up to you looking for a pat or a scratch and of course the moment he got sick of you, he’d go in for the bite
11/19/2011 at 22:37
I viewed your portfolio – incredible landscapes and immensely powerful images. You are truly gifted with an eye for natural splender.
11/19/2011 at 21:38
Thank you 🙂
11/19/2011 at 22:16
gorgeous – and a perfect table design inspiration. Thanks for the pics.
Absolutely beautiful and adorable! Your photos are true works of art!
11/19/2011 at 19:16

11/19/2011 at 18:49
How fine..Great colors of nature..You did it well.
11/19/2011 at 18:38
I adore birds, especially parrots. When I left home, I also left two lovely, curious and chatty buggies and I miss them so much, so thank you for these pictures, I love the colours, the angle and the way they remind me of my feathery friends! 🙂 ^_^
11/19/2011 at 17:09
No hugs in the bottom two photos. Poor lonely birds. Great shots though
11/19/2011 at 17:07
Huggggggggggggggggg! Group huddle! Animal/bird pics make one feel so happy 🙂
11/19/2011 at 16:33
There are lovely photographies !!! Good work !!!
11/19/2011 at 16:05
What fantastic photos! The one you took of the three birds together is simply amazing. I recently visited the Denver Zoo and they have a fantastic Lorikeet exhibit. I managed to take some good pictures, but you’ve really captured the beauty and affectionate nature of the bird.
11/19/2011 at 15:51
These photos are gorgeous. I went to Parrot Jungle here in Miami about 2 months ago and I was extremely scared to feed them. Mostly because I’m scared of birds but they are gorgeous.
11/19/2011 at 15:49
REALLY amazing photos. Beautiful. Where did you take these photos ? I thought maybe in Australia ;D
11/19/2011 at 15:48

Awesome colours! Amazing!
11/19/2011 at 14:12
11/19/2011 at 13:48
Are these “just-in-time” lucky shots, or did you have such wonderful patience so as to sit and wait for the shot? Or…were you working with trained actors 🙂
11/19/2011 at 13:36
Beautiful colors. Very cute, especially the first picture of the three birds huddled together.

11/20/2011 at 11:16
Very beautiful pictures!
11/19/2011 at 08:12
I am confused about whom to praise; the photographer who captured this or the camera which captured this or the eyes which we can see this….OR the God who has designed such creatures so immaculately !!!
Thanks for sharing these captivating pics.
11/19/2011 at 07:53
I’d say all of them, all of the above. But if you don’t thank the parrots, they might steal your crackers! 🙂
11/20/2011 at 11:21
woa!!so lovely and natural!!! Thanks for sharing!!!

I love birds, oh I just want to cuddle them!
11/19/2011 at 03:50
Beautiful and bright images, I love the photograph of the Rainbow Lorikeets hugging, we have an abundance of them where we live in Queensland thanks to the many native flowering trees growing in our suburb and watching their antics always makes me smile.
11/19/2011 at 03:02
tee-hee-hee…The hug is great!
11/19/2011 at 02:43

11/19/2011 at 00:04
those are lovely! i love birds myself and in fact, i own a pair of african lovebirds which have almost the same colors as the ones in the photo.. i named them lemon (the yellow one) and lime (the green one).. they are so cute and yes, noisy haha! but it’s nice hearing them tweet..
11/18/2011 at 23:52
Rainbow Lorikeets! I have two who come to my kitchen window daily. They are so cute. So full of personality – they even seem polite and friendly 🙂 Always make sure I have some bread for them.
11/18/2011 at 23:32
Lovely rainbow lorikeets; but such pests here in Western Australia, where they are ousting locally native parrots like 28s. They’re also so raucous and noisy in the bigger flocks, and can seriously upset exam time for students if they feed in trees nearby. That said, it’s hard to be mad at them for long when they look that beautiful.
11/18/2011 at 23:03
beautiful, colorful, absolutely fanstastic pictures.
11/18/2011 at 22:44
Cool birds! Do they live near you?
11/18/2011 at 22:38
I wish these little guys were free around my house, local zoo guys.
I have heaps of those birds around me. Not the last one, but the lorikeets.
11/19/2011 at 02:37
Love how colorful they are. Birds are smart too. The color combinations are just astounding.
11/18/2011 at 22:33
Great photo and nice blog,,,,enjoy the holidays
11/18/2011 at 22:00
The top 3 parrots are so beautiful but bit scary. But macaw is beautiful friendly
11/18/2011 at 21:54
I used to volunteer in the bird department at the Oklahoma City Zoo, and I worked a lot with the Lorikeets. I love your pictures of them. They hold such a special place in my heart. 🙂
11/18/2011 at 21:50
I love these birds – where do I get one?
11/18/2011 at 21:46
Love birds you have captured their character well. We used to feed the lorikeets on our back deck and got lots of similar shots.
11/18/2011 at 21:24
Amazing photos, thanks for sharing!
Seriously, could anything be cuter? Beautiful photos – what color – just lovely!
11/18/2011 at 21:21
Beautiful birds! The top three are so cute together.
11/18/2011 at 20:59

Love these photos.
Check the photos out on my website: http://www.PawsHomeCare.com
11/18/2011 at 20:48
Love the bird’s colors! How they seem to cuddle each other in the first photo is something I would have preferred seeing than them being used to destroy the greedy pigs’ fortresses! Kodus for not making the birds angry! Lol!
11/18/2011 at 20:39
Lovely colour. very nice.
11/18/2011 at 20:33
Ah, they make me homesick for Australia – beautiful!
11/18/2011 at 20:30

Gorgeous. I’ve never been a bird watcher, but I’ve been moving in that direction lately. Such amazing creatures!
11/18/2011 at 18:41
I saw a movie a couple years ago about wild parrots in Brooklyn. I’ve also seen them wild in San Francisco. They are amazingly hardy.
11/18/2011 at 18:38
So cute! Great photos! 🙂
11/18/2011 at 18:32
I love birds. We couldn’t have cats or dogs growing up so I always had birds. Now I miss my eclectus. 😦 I love the photos though.
11/18/2011 at 18:10
Hey, my first time here. Love your colourful birds! The first bird photos, are those Rainbow Lorikeets? There are plenty of them here in Australia. I love it when they rush to a tree in a frenzy as a group and noisily have their snacks and leave as a group!
11/18/2011 at 18:07
Such beautiful parrots & pictures! Love it.
11/18/2011 at 18:05

Are those Rainbow Loris? When I was little I saw a picture in a book of these birds and names them my favorite animal. Their colors are so bright! Great photos.
