Lorikeet

Lorikeet, originally uploaded by Shiny Things.

The lorikeets at the Jurong Bird Park are unbelievably friendly. They’ll perch on your shoulder; pose for photos; and deafen you with their screeching.

(You definitely want to view this one full-size.)

And if you like birds (or even if you don’t), here’s more from the Bird Park - a Crowned Pigeon from Papua New Guinea, a Steller’s Sea Eagle (one of the world’s biggest birds of prey), and a photo of an owl, shot under even-less-than-moonlight, that’ll make you want to buy a Canon 5D3.
