These birds still captivate me every time I look at them. They are beautiful colours of the rainbow and masters of agility.
These four birds are snacking off the tree near my balcony, and I spent a good 10 minutes stalking them, They pretty much ignored me and went about picking the best bits.
I find animals in Australia a lot less jittery than animals in Malaysia. They seem to know that they don't have much to fear from people, and are used to humans because so many houses share areas with the bush.
This one was about 3 feet away from me (you can see the edge of my roof right there). Yes, he turned to look at the crazy woman stalking him with a camera, but went about eating again.
