30 MAY 2011 : EVERY STORY TELLS A PICTURE : RAINBOW LORIKEETS.

LORIKEETS

NATURE NOTES. (1930, February 1). The Advertiser.

 

Lorikeets ‘ The lorikeets are an interesting group of the great Australian parrot ‘ family with their hairy or brush tongue ; for gathering flower honey. Every  evening here, just before dark, I watch  a flock of scaly-breasted lorikeets returning to the same clump of tall gums for the night. There is much screeching and fuss before they settle down, and occasionally an owl disturbs them long after dark. These swift and straight-flying parrots, given to whistling shrilly on the wing, are still rather plentiful. Flocks shower into the trees and climb about, clinging in all sorts of positions with the well-developed feet.Lorikeets belong to Australia only, and in various parts are Known as lowries, keets, lories, green leeks, &c. We have the big rainbow lorikeet, the little. and the musk lorikeet, the last-named being a green bird with a strong smell of musk. To the north alone belong the varied and the red-collared, and to the south alone the beautiful purple-crowned lorikeet. Altogether there are seven species of these parrots.

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE 15 : WATER.

Morning to you all. I kind of dudded out on the TINY category. I thought I had found a few tiny things but I haven’t posted them. Give me one moment while I take a look. Ah yes. I was looking for tiny things in nature but nothing caught my attention so I took to looking indoors and came across the tiny bits and pieces of my interior life. Just a quick look and then on to this week’s topic: WATER.

I am very fond of water. Water. Sugar. Fire. My 3 passions. I don’t think I have any brilliant pics of water but I do have a lot. I am of the Estuarine People.

Hello visitors. I am Yori Yuliandra: not a real photographer actually; just someone who loves photography a lot.

By making photographs, I really admire the nature and praise the Creator.
