Still trickling in my images from Sydney and surrounds in August ..........

Rainbow Lorikeets are very common where we were but I found them very difficult to 'pin down'. They are extremely skittish. This set is the best I got from several hours of trying.

Those lorikeets sure are pretty. Must be trying to stun their predators with brilliance.

An excellent set, David.
The last image got a chuckle from me. Parrots are highly intelligent, and some of them are mischievous (i.e. the kea in New Zealand that tear off windshield wiper blades from cars, pull out nails from roofs of houses, rip open backpacks to see what's in them, etc.). The last pic makes me think it's just looking for trouble .
