This rainbow lorikeet is drinking nectar from the flowers of an umbrella tree at Lake Eacham, near Yungaburra in north Queensland. Lake Eacham is in a volcanic crater covered in rainforest. Umbrella trees are common around the lake. Their bright red flowers attract many birds, including lorikeets. There is a walking track around the lake, picnic areas and a swimming spot.

This photo is so colorful and cheerful. I love parrots, and this rainbow lorikeet is beautiful. I like that you captured it drinking. The placement of the bird within the frame is great, and we get to also enjoy the lovely tree branches and flowers.

Hi Vince - great one of the lorikeet - is this one of the trees that they get drunk on?

its too bad more people havn't given you credits on this photo.
just take a look at all those colors!
the bird itself is amazing to look at.
its blue head is the best contrast in the frame.

The image is perfectly balanced. I especially love colours- luminous and fresh. Perfect sharpness.
