The world's best flyfishing site.

Picture of the Day
Rainbow Lorikeet

Trichoglossus Haematodus

I have the privilege of sharing this real life shot, after a lush day fishing at Alexander Bay, in the Noosa National Park,

I was able to capture this amazing photo. It did take strategy though… tip toeing around, backwards and forwards. ‘There he is!’ Just as I’ m all set up, ‘OH! NO, he’s off again.’ And then! He shows all his beauty, on a native Banksia Flower,

The Lorikeet is from the parrot family, brightly coloured and very noisy. Yes indeed, particularly if you are standing in the vicinity of a large Eucalyptus tree while three to four dozen enjoy the fruits and nectar - Karen
