Colourful visitors

Winter-flowering sasanqua camellias along my fenceline have just finished flowering, but a few weeks ago these colourful rainbow lorikeets dropped by for a visit.  They are the most entertaining of birds, like torpedoes on the wing, but crazy, acrobatic clowns when they are feeding.

When the eucalypts are in flower, they descend in huge numbers, and with their raucous screeching as they hang upside or fight for the best position to feed on the nectar, it's like 'party central' has arrived!
