Taken March 7 at the Nashville Zoo. My partner had to go to Kentucky for business meetings, the closest airport was Nashville. So we took a few extra days and made a mini vacation out of it since we had never been to Nashville before. I always go to zoos if the city has one. I got a lot of really neat bird pictures, in this area you could feed the lorikeets and a couple landed on my head. It was fun!

I always like bird shots when the eye and beak are in focus. Pretty colors!

I love lorikeets! Such friendly birds, except for when you run out of nectar and they start taking nips out of your fingers. ;D

They are adorable and very colorful birds. Same deal at the aquarium in Long Beach - you can feed them and they'll come sit on your hands, your head, whatever! You had nice subtle light for this - really shows off the color well.

I'm very fond of these birds too. They used to come to our garden in the house where I grew up, though I'm sorry to say my cat made a career of chasing them.

Spectacular colors and feather detail. The eye is pretty amazing, too.

I'm constantly being drawn to the eye while watching the beak. Nice birdie shot.
