Far North Queensland is known for its World Heritage Rainforest canopies that meet  with the  crystal clear waters of the Great Barrier Reef.        
The Rainbow Lorikeets fly in groups from tree to tree searching for the fruits of the Rainforest. Pictured here in this painting – foraging a palette of  the Umbrella Tree berries  which they can get quite intoxicated  from and at times can cause them to fall out of the tree in a drunken stupor.  
Way to go!!  Sorry , this painting is SOLD    

The Tropical Kiss

The screeching of the beautiful Eclectus Parrots cuts through the silence of the Rainforests and echos for miles across mountain ranges to reach the woody plains and outbacks of Cape York Pennisula.  The Male is the Green Parrot and the Female is the Red.  This pair is perched on the Native Penda tree which is the floral emblem of Cairns.
