Went outside today to rescue what's left of the figs, only to find the tree shimmering with colour,
Necessitating the fetching of a zoom lens, instead.
Allow me to introduce my Resident Disco Fiends: the Rainbow Lorikeets.
Unintimidated by mirror balls, awash with fig juice, and shamelessly posing for the camera (this one obliged me with perfect stillness until I had my shot),
I even caught one in flagrante delicto.
Cheeky little buggers,
But absurdly beautiful. And they're having such a good time.
I suppose the jam can wait one more day.
They'll be gone soon enough.
