An unseemly cacophony heralded the arrival of a small neighbourhood flock of Rainbow lorikeets on this unseasonably hot spring morning. My camera and I were of course bound to follow. Here are some of the results.

The Jacaranda tree (probably Jacaranda mimosifolia) is in a neighbour’s garden, and the branches on which the birds are perching are 8m to 10m high. All photos are taken from ground level.
