Scientific Name: Trichoglossus moluccanu

Rainbow lorikeet

This shot was selected from hundreds because of the vibrant colours and I could get really close.

Rainbow lorikeet fledgling

This is a young fledgling, it has black eyes instead of red and the beak is a darker colour and not the full orange. The tail feathers (out of frame) would be shorter. Is was also very trusting and I was within a metre at times.
