[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Trichoglossus haematodus moluccanus

"The Rainbow Lorikeet is widely distributed along the coastal strip from Cape York south to Victoria and into South Australia. It is often abundant from Sydney northwards, but is becoming rarer south of Sydney. An increasing population around Perth, in Western Australia, is thought to be derived from escaped aviary birds. The prefered habitat is coastal forests as well as urban gardens. Noisy flocks of up to several hundred may congregate in flowering trees to feed and roost, at times in the company of Scaly Breasted Lorikeets. Breeding in the wild is from August to January.
The Rainbow Lorikeet is one of maybe 18 to 20 subspecies of T. haematodus, a complex which is widely distributed through the southwest Pacific islands, Papua-New Guinea and Indonesia."

Wow Claudia! This is a colorful one! Nice of him to pose in the "V"...;-)
Well seen and captured,

Great color and I like this unique composition Claudia. Good detail and light also. Well done & Thank You!

Hello Claudia,
A nice compo but it looks somehow oversaturized and there is some serious purple and blue fringing on the bird and tree.
The bird looks oversharpened as well.
Therefor a little smile only. ;-) Thomas
