A pair of Lorakeets in the Denver Zoo
It's been slightly more than a year since the Denver Zoo Lorakeet Enclosure was completed, but I had never been inside. Like we--as grandparents--often do, we used our enthusiastic granddaughter as an excuse, no-actually just a reason, to go see the lorakeets. In this new enclosure we estimated, as it difficult to count a room full of flying color swatches, about 50 lorakeets lived, flew, preened and bounced their heads. Clio was ecstatic, running from one to another. I took too many photos and a few 6 or 7-second video clips (which I had hoped to post here but couldn't figure out how to do it without reading and researching and opening a ticket etc.). So, I'll just share a few of the still photos:
This one was very animated, bobbing up and down.
The red bird below made several flying circles before landing on the fence perfectly posed on the hypotenuse of two triangles in my lens.
