This was taken just after a spell of heavy rainfall and this Rainbow Lorikeet's plumage was a little wet. Larger view in the note on this image.

Hilton Esplanade, Noosa River, Queensland

These aptly named beautiful Australian birds, the Rainbow Lorikeets, parrots, have incredibly brightly coloured feathers, and a distinctive screeching call.

In Noosa they fly between the Noosa River and the Hinterland feeding on the rich variety of flowering/fruiting trees and shrubs.

This works well as the wet has brought out the detail in the feathers.
