Friday Photo: 27 September

Well, I guess its not going to be hard identifying this shot.  One of Australia’s plentiful (yet colourful) lorikeets done in a ‘portrait style’.  Enjoy :)

    Not sure if they’re still there nowadays, but there used to be a flock of these critters resident at the Heretaunga (Royal Wellington) Golf Course – and they can sure create a racket! Their colouring is brilliant – especially the red / yellows under the wings.

    Thanks, Chthoniid. Always appreciated. :)

    Stunning photo!
    The Aussies are so lucky to have amazing animals like this.

    In West Auckland (edge of the Waitakere Ranges) we regularly see Rosellas and hear the distinctive ‘laugh’ of Kookaburra’s.
    Somebody must have though NZ should be more like Australia?

    16 month old RRM Jr is loving Slinky Malinki open the door at the moment.

    He seems to recognise that Slinky Malinki is a representation of a cat like our real flesh & blood cat.

    I don’t think he understands what the bird in the story is meant to be, but the colours are evidently pretty exciting!

    Nice one Chthoniid. I enjoy your pictures, thank you.

    However, with this one, my first reaction, was how in the Dickens did Chthoniid sneak up so quietly without disturbing the scene to capture Pete George on the Great Possum’s shoulder, engrossed in Dunne-isms.

    You might be able to sell the pic to Air NZ for advertising its first-morning flights, Chthoniid. The red eye is great.
