Lorikeet - Top Vote Getter

My beloved Lorikeets are going away in just 3 more days. September 30, 2014 the Oregon Zoo is closing Lorikeet Landing for good in favor of building a learning center in their location. They are shipping all the birds to a zoo in Florida. I, for one, don't agree with this decision but then I don't get a vote.

Since I've accepted as a contributing photographer for National Geographic the one photograph that has received the most favorite votes by far is this shot of one of my beloved Lorikeet. It sort of surprised me how popular this shot became as it wasn't close to being my favorite animal photograph. Fuji X-E1, 55-200mm F/3.5-4.8 ISO 3200, F/8.0, 1/220". at 200mm focal length.
