Food, glorious food


Oh the rainbow lorikeets, they are so gorgeous. And with autumn yielding all sorts of fruits and bays, they are all over the gardens, rowdy groups screeching loudly in an unmistakable way. On this Saturday morning I can hear them now from my computer desk!

Ah ces loriquets arc-en-ciel, ce qu'ils sont beaux ! Et avec l'automne qui apporte toutes sortes de fruits et de baies, ils sont partout dans les jardins, se déplaçant en bandes, poussant des cris perçants qu'on reconnait instantanément. En ce samedi matin je les entends là maintenant, alors que je suis devant mon ordinateur.

This is an amazing photo! The lorikeet is beautiful, so are the berries.

A lorikeet...very colorful catch!

They're a beautiful species, and one which multiplied dramatically as a result of human activity. Despite their proclivity for waking sleepers too early, they're much more acceptable than the currawongs which, thanks to urban development increasing their numbers, do enormous damage to small bird populations.

Very nice picture. I like a lot this bird, and its colors in this tree.

J'imagine que les loriquets ne doivents pas avoir beaucoup de prédateurs, car question tenue de camouflage, ne n'est pas terrible... encore que, au milieu des feuilles et des fruits, on puisse se poser la question...

... and you have this just on the other side of your window!

Fantastic colours!

... and obviously nice (?) "music" while you are "working".

On ne dirait pas une photo d'automne, quoique l'automne peut être très coloré aussi. Mais moi en tout cas, je m'attends à d'autres couleurs en automne. Bonjour aux oiseaux de toutes les couleurs.

Oh yes this is a beautiful bird and we have nothing so pretty has this. I like this photograph and you did good getting it. What kind of berries are those?

I just discovered a earlier that two baby robins have left the nest. Or one is still there. I have photographed those and will show them on Monday.

Great photograph. Somewhere in my slide collection I have a similar image taken about 16 years ago in Brisbane.

Seeing this wonderful image brought back a flood of memories.
