These at 1/100 with is064 due to accidentally leaving it on manual from flash work the last night :/ Still I didn't actually lose many of the ones that weren't totally obscured by foliage or out of focus. They're pretty agile in the trees, more than you'd expect, rainbow and scaly breasted lorikeets aren't much faster.
Some from the next day having made sure to shoot with more appropriate settings!
Thanks! We're lucky in that they're "around" but not right on us, and we're in but not right in their flight path from coorparoo to the city botanic gardens. The smell from the big colonies on a hot humid day (especially early morning with no wind) is uh, well, people will tell you that you can get used to it, but they're wrong. Sometimes I get the absolute shit scared out of me by one dropping out and flapping away from a bottlebrush or brazilian cherry tree less than a metre over my head at night though.
