Down in Surfers Paradise the humans rule. Singles, couples, families, seniors and toddlers….you name it….they gather at the bright lights, cafes, shops and nightclubs to be thrilled and entertained.

Amongst the human revelry however, and if you look up to the sky for while, another species is thrilled by the bright lights and the promise of some nibbles.

This lorikeet is just one of a small gaggle of birds perched on the sills and rooftops of the buildings. I took this snap as one flew down looking for leftover pizza. He was not a bit perturbed by my curiosity, so I was able to take a close up…..he even seemed to pose for me!
