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.

  1. So bright and beautiful! I am glad you got to capture a few photos of it before you had to leave.


  2. Lorikeets are so colorful and pretty.
    I could watch them all day too!
    Happy Wednesday, Lydia!

  3. A reminder that the world is full of beautiful surprises.

  4. Wie schön, so einen farbenprächtigen Vogel in der Natur zu sehen !
    Liebe Grüße aus Deutschland

  5. 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??

  6. Magic moments indeed!! And such a beautiful, wonderful array of photos!
    Thanks for coming by to share this with us birders at I'd Rather B Birdin'
