These feathers were naturally molted out by a Rainbow Lorikeet.
Each feather has been individually photographed using a macro lens to pick up every single delicate detail. Angela then composited the 4 feathers together in an arrangement likened to if the feathers had naturally fallen.
This art piece was created especially for the Foundation and Friends of the Royal Botanical Gardens Wild Thing Exhibition.
The Rainbow Lorikeet occurs in coastal regions across northern and eastern Australia, with a local population in Perth (Western Australia) and Tasmania, initiated from aviary releases.
In October, BirdLife Australia holds the largest citizen scientist project, the Aussie Backyard Bird Count. In 2016, the rainbow lorikeet topped the national tally as the country’s most common birds.
The data collected assists BirdLife Australia in understanding more about where and what species live where.
