This post is for World Bird Wednesday
Usually when I am out with the camera I am focused on birds and the scenery is part of the background. Sometimes, however, the background is so beautiful that the birds just become a delightful extra!
The last few days we have had several spectacular sunrises. Of course the day has been overcast afterwards, but it's certainly a delightful start to the day. These photos were taken from my back veranda looking towards the Grevillea trees. The Rainbow Lorikeets are usually the first birds to visit the yard and they drop in on the grevilleas with their usual noisy cries. The morning - and the sunrise - wouldn't be the same if they didn't come by.
A photo of a Rainbow Lorikeet taken a while ago - in better light.
