Rainbow lorikeets Explosive flash of chattering streaks across the sky Green darts, zip past, faster than my eye .....Tumultuous, ecstatic, rolling on sharp wings, Shrieking, fleeting, crips air rings.... Jet propulsion through the trees in splinter tight sensation, Lorikeets, upward sweep, Soaring elevation!

Hi Susan and thank you for your wishes! I just came from skiing. It's been only few minus degrees Celsius and last weekend it was raining, but some snow remained :)

Best greetings, Ippa
