Default [pic] Rainbow Lorikeet pair

Braeside Park is a haven for nesting birds, particularly parrots. There is an abundance of dead trees with plenty of hollows for birds to nest in. In particular there were plenty of Rainbow Lorikeets & several Red-rumped Parrots nesting. The Rainbow Lorikeets were much more accommodating & allowed me to get close enough for some nice portrait shots. This particular pair were scoping out various nesting locations. I was quite surprised to see them even looking in fallen branches.

Not real, are they?
Nice detail throughout.

Beautiful birds. The colors from the E620 really do pop.
