Rainbow Lorikeet

By scotjames
My friend Roy and I (thats him taking the shot in the background) had a day at Edinburgh Zoo yesterday. This was us in the "Rainbow Landings" experience where these beautiful birds fly freely and happily land on you to feed on nectar in smalls cups you are given when you go in. It was a truly spectacular experience.

I had to point and shoot and hope for the best with this one. What you can't tell from shot is that another of these gorgeous birds was perched on my left shoulder screeching very loudly in my ear.
