Description

With all the native gums flowering at this time of the year, the parrots are flocking in their droves. Rainbow lorikeets live with their mate in families. A few days ago, one of the lorikeets hit our big plate glass window killing himself, a regular occurence sadly, as the clouds reflect on the glass.

Exif: F Number: 6.3, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 1/640 seconds, Flash: did not fire, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 1600, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 300.00 mm, Model: SLT-A99V
