Stun-Ning!!!
Carole, you are so good with that televerter of yours. I especially love the third photo of these rainbows. We have them around the place too, and they are so chatty, perhaps bossy would be more accurate.
Thanks for sharing,
Ros.

Hi Carole Another one of my favorite birds, probably because when my daughter and family lived in Sydney, my grandson who was about 3 loved 2 of these birds that came to our veranda every day. we called them Sukie and Polly and they fed from our hands. Have a great weekend. Margaret

I remember the first time I saw one of these birds - I thought that somebody was having a joke - how can anything be that bright!

Now I have them in my garden!
