For those not lucky enough to live here.
These are all Australian wild birds and very common around where I live. When they are used to close human contact they become almost tame and can be hand fed.

This was taken in the bush on my neighbours border with my house it was quite happy for me to get within a few feet while it fed on the necture.

Such exotic looking birds to me - to see the group on the lamp post is really something.

And agreement on the first shot - stunning!

Number 1 is stunning. Unfortunately the rosellas and lorikeets around my place are a bit flighty.

Thanks for all your nice comments.
The 1st one is a big favourite of mine. I printed it out A3 size on my Epson Artisan 1430, and it hangs nicely in my study/home office.
