Hungry Rainbow Lorikeets



I was pulling out of my mother's driveway when I saw this little bird (and some of his friends) eating the flowers.

I stopped the car and took photos through the window - regretting I didn't have my camera with me!

Joy burst forth inside me and I regretted having to get going as I had things I had to do. I could have stayed watching for hours. 

Sometimes the smallest of things will create the biggest moments of happiness.



"The very best gift... is that anyone can experience those unexpected twinkles of joy that make a magical moment. At these moments, you feel true, deep joy because of a great new insight, a beautiful prospect, or a glimpse into the radiance of another soul. They are the magic moments when life seems better than you ever realized." Richard M. Eyre.

  5. Thank you for the beautiful photos and your thoughts on them. It's good that nowadays we always have a mobilphone with us, when we left the camera at home. Whether your mother is happy, however, when the Loris eat her flowers? Greetings - Elke

    1. That's quite a good question. I'm in the city so any 'wildlife' is a cause for celebration. She is in the suburbs so maybe they're a pest??
