How lucky I was to see rainbow lorikeets, the whirling dervishes of the bird world, usually high on an abundance of nectar, still for a moment. Resting and twittering to themselves.
You’d think I’d be used to it by now but seeing them still makes me do a double take. All that colour flying free makes you stand up and take notice no matter how often you see it.
It’s the little guys living amongst us that keep us in touch with the bigger picture.
