Thanks Joan, Love lorikeets!
Great action shot.
They sure flutter around and make a noise Mark. It's quite hard to get just one on their own to photograph. I had an injury at the time and could sit and wait for something to happen.
Nice action shot Kerry. These guys beat their wings so fast they seem like big moths to me.
