I tried really hard to get some decent photos of our fur, feather and fin family today so I could introduce them all to you.
Instead your getting these shots.
The usual result when trying to photograph a lorikeet looks like this.
With persistence I got this.
Meet Loki the Lorikeet. We figured out she was a girl when she laid eggs for the first time last year. She's sitting on eggs right now which makes her even more excitable then usual. She makes squeeky ball sounds whilst nursing her eggs.
This is Oscar, he did have another name but it never stuck and yes his tank definitely needs a polish on the outside to get rid of all those drip marks.
Ada, named after Miss Lovelace. Turns out she isn't as smart as we thought she was. She is nearly impossible to get a photo of because she loves to put her nose against the camera lens.
This suave looking fellow is Heimdell who actually didn't mind having his photo taken and posed nicely even if it was in the shadows. He's really shy and doesn't like to be touched, but he does like a bit of a chat if you happen to speak screech.
Noisy girl our other corella and she also likes to get up close and personal with the camera. She will let you pat her all day. She will also bite if she feels like it.
The Fluff Monster aka Fluffy (her real name is Sacha but we hardly ever call her that) She's my old girl - she's 14 and half and has always been super grumpy and neurotic. I'd swear she can purr and hiss at the same time.
Meet Freki. We took him in because he needed a home, he's a big sooky-la-la and is absolutely as adorable as he looks. He's the reason we got Geri.
Geri the wonder-dog. Constantly underfoot she is definitely not even close to as innocent and adorable as she looks in this pic, but she does leave you wondering what on earth she was thinking!
Tell me about your fur, feather and fin babies in the comments.
