On my front fence: Rainbow Lorikeets

These photos were taken with the Nikon D3000, yesterday. I put the seed out the day before, but the birds didn’t notice. It’s been ages since I scattered birdseed on the fence.  I’ll only do it now and then, as they can forage for themselves.







Thanks for looking.

I do hope you are warm where you are. I spent too long this morning outdoors – my toes are freezing. The thermometer read -4 C around 8am when we had our coffee in bed. Last night, when we went to bed just after 8pm, the temperature was already 0 C. Yeah, I know, I spend far too long in bed! No wonder I find it difficult to get anything done.

Stay warm.    🙂



I started blogging in an effort to keep the old brain cells alive. I'm writing a fantasy series, I take more MOOCs than I can handle, and am trying to get my Nikon D3000 off auto. I live in Victoria, Australia, with my husband and our dog, Vika.

  1. Whenever you photograph these gorgeous birds, I am blown away by their striking colors and pattern. i made it to your new blog and am looking forward to reading your posts here.


    1. Thanks for coming over, Janet. I should have just upgraded the blog I had, instead of trying to have a separate ‘author platform’. The colour on the lorikeets is amazing. I’m fortunate to have just the one pair visit for they can be noisy and overwhelming in large numbers. They tame fairly easily when food is involved, methinks. The 200mm lens lets me get even closer.


  2. Aren’t they beautiful. Amazes me how many different types of parrot we have in australia with such differing plumage. Woollies had double pack of fleecy blankets, Q size for $16.00. Cheaper than flanelette sheets. Bought a set for Alec’s bed, no chill & sooo soft, mark of approval from Julius. So they were nice and cosy when the temperature went down. When I got up at 7.00 my phone said 2deg. Think I will go back and get another set.

    1. Hello Sue, fleecy blankets for sheets sounds like a great idea for camping, too! We have a double sleeping bag to go under the wool doona – and an electric blanket. 🙂 Minus 3 this morning about 6am. And yes, the lorikeets are gorgeous!
