"Rainbow Lorikeet."


Swan Reach.Vic., AU
          

A flock of these pretty little parrots have been frequenting a Grevillea across the road from my home lately. They arrive before the sun rises, so the SB-700 flash was necessary. They don't sit still for long, so the AF was very busy. I hope you enjoy my effort.....Scotty.

All with D300s + 300mm F/4D + 1.4TC.
1/200s @ f5.6 iso500.

Wow, it looks like God has put the entire rainbow on these birds, brilliant colours well captured with all the limitations. TFS

Thanks Jim/Preston. They are a beautiful little bird. Due to their constant, noisy, chattering & bickering they're easy to find. But won't stay still for a good shot. I guess that's one of the challenges that makes wildlife photography so interesting. Thanks again for your comments.....Scotty.
