Our figs suddenly ripened a week ago. We were thinking they weren’t going to this year round. We’d had a long hot dry summer and we hadn’t watered the tree, or most of our garden, wanting to preserve our water as we live on tank water.  We got some rain, wind and sun in the space of a week and suddenly the figs ripened. And with that we had a sudden influx of birdlife, as well as bats at night. Below are Rainbow Lorikeets enjoying the fruits of our tree.

The Rainbow Lorikeet is a native of Australia and belong to the Parrot family.

I think this might be a young Lorikeet.

I caught this one unawares and it looked up with surprise.
Who me?

Enjoying his tucker!
