CommentI particularly like this photo because it brings out the fine texture of the bird's feathers and colours. The image is sharp and is attractive to view with the background adding to the impact of the bird itself. It has a certain amount of "wow" factor and demonstrates how truly beautiful these little lorikeets are. The overcast evening light has provided even light across the image with no shadows. The bird is waiting for the Rainbow Lorikeets to feed before it will move in soon after. I was surprised to see a Rainbow Lorikeet and Scaly-breasted Lorikeet preening each other soon in the same tree just after I took this photo.
