Wow this is amazing! When I first so it I thought it was perhaps a painting, for such bright colors in a picture are so rare! No wonder it's called "Rainbow Lorikeet", the name really describes it's beautiful feathers.

Everything about this picture really captivates you. The details are perfect, you can see every single feather and in the eye you can see the reflection of what was above him. Then it's in the perfect frame. I like how it's sided to the left rather than centered, very creative without loosing its focus.

Really good shot, a personal favourite for me.

The colors are just fantastic! The eye is so vivid and bright. The blue part is very detailed and each feather is unique in its own way. The beak is really fascinating as well - The yellow and orange on it blend together perfectly. The greens on the back of the bird are also very fine and precise. This was an excellent photo. There is no blur or static in any part of it and the bird is very well centered. There's no part that's too dark or too light for it, and it's a very eye-catching photo. I'm not surprised you won the contest! Great job!

Fantastic image. It is a small shame about the noise in the background (possibly due to sharpening?) but this won't show as much in a print version, noise never does. Great job.

I think I prefer this crop to the other one ... the closeness of the face gives the parrot a cheeky look and brings out his totally amazing eyes. well shot xx

What a stunningly beautiful photograph! I have a flock of these gorgeous birds eating/drinking the nectar from the flowers in the tree outside my window :D:D:D

They are very beautiful, and very silly birds :D They get drunk on flower nectar and fall about on the ground. We have large flocks of rainbow lorikeets, galahs and cockatoos here at the moment. We've just had rain and they are after the food.
