Lorikeet in Flame!!!

Driving around today I noticed this little scene on the side of the road so I upset the local garbo and pulled over on the side of the road (somewhat blocking his access) and proceeded to capture this moment.

Unfortunately the garbo managed to scare off my beautiful scene pretty quickly so I was only able to get this and 2 other shots, but I quite like the way the Flame Tree flowers are cradling the Lorikeet.

    Shame the bird is out of focus , it would have been a scorcher.

    Poor old garbo's cop it from all angles. 🙂

    Hey Mark, very impresive shot. I knew you were into photography but I didn't know you were this talented.

    I really have to visit Australia one of these good days.

      Gidday Kheron…all the way from Trinidad!

      Thanks for visiting mate and the kind words!

      Indeed I take my photography seriously and have had a great mentor in Christian Fletcher.

      You can read about my journey in one of my recent posts on my blog.

      See you next month mate!

      Cheers
