Rainbow Lorikeet

I have managed to photograph one of the Rainbow Lorikeets that frequent the area. They are such beautiful birds but I confess to not being able to properly enjoy their beauty. I still haven't quite forgiven them for bullying out our lovely native Twenty Eight Parrot which we almost never see in our garden anymore. They should be a good lesson to me to accept the things I cannot change.  I will make that my goal today!

Now I must get on with the painting that I began working on yesterday.  This post is just another strategy to delay getting on with it. I often have to push through the barrier of inertia each time I begin painting.  It only takes moments before I am in the creative flow so I don't know why I carry on like this. It doesn't happen all the time, but I seem to be going through a patch of it lately.


  1. Thanks for visiting my blog Gexton and for your kind comments.

  2. Wow!
    This photo is spectacular!
    I love the Rainbow Lorikeet! Also love the tree! The flowers are beautiful!
    Sorry this species chased out your parrots!
    Last two days my little corner of the planed received two more feet of snow! I still love it!

  3. Hi Michael,
    Yes, it is a beautiful tree - there are actually two in the photo, it's the smaller tree that is flowering. I've been making a point of accepting the birds since posting the photo and have come to enjoy them much more. They are very beautiful and their raucous squawking is a rather entertaining sound in the background when writing and painting.
    Sorry to hear you've been having such wild weather in your neck of the woods, it's great though how you are always able to see the good side of things - very inspiring!
