The Rainbow Lorikeet is very colourful. Almost every colour of the rainbow is found on the feathers of the rainbow lorikeet. They are not large birds, with a Rainbow Lorikeets height ranging from 25-30 cm (9.8-11.8 in) in size, and with a wingspan of about 17 cm (6.7 in). They vary significantly in colouration between the numerous subspecies. Their markings of the best known subspecies T. h. moluccanus are particularly striking: A dark blue or violet-blue head and stomach, a bright green back, tail and vent, and an orange breast and beak. Several subspecies have darker scalloped markings across the orange or red breast and the Weber's Lorikeet (T. h. weberi) is predominantly green.
Oh happy day. I finally got the lens that I've been lusting after for six months. The Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM is the object of my desire. As soon as I got home, I had to play with it. For this shot, I also attached a Canon Extender EF 2x II. I was amazed that even with the extender and at ISO 1600, the noise was much less than with my other lenses. Yay.
