Here’s a quick one as I’m still smiling after watching it happen
Take two Purple-crowned Lorikeets in preening mode. Have one of them decide that its more fun on the other side of the branch.
Imagine (if you will), it can fly across to the new spot.
Our hero of the moment takes a much more direct approach. Had I but known this would have been so much more fun to see in video.
Nothing like a preen and a wingstretch to build a pair bond
Thinks: I’d like to be on the other side.
Half way and making it look easy. Hasn’t exactly attracted the mate’s attention either. It will never notice what is going on. Heh heh.
Ah, now to get right side up again.
Lorikeet chin-ups. An olympic contender.
There, wasn’t that easy. Still not much reaction for the mate.

Beautiful captures David, how easy it is for them, It caused a little interest with the partner, but it is curious as to why it felt the need to move.
That really made me laugh out loud. What a lovely series of shots, and thanks for sharing the moment.
