Blue Roller (?)
A pair of eclectus parrots. The male is the green one. In Port Douglas, Far North Queensland.
One of the most beautiful moths in the world, the Comet moth or Madagascan Moon Moth, is named after its long red 'tails'. There are a number of moon moths with tails varying in length from mere stubs to long streamers. Biologists now think that those with the longest tails such as this species have evolved more recently than those with shorter tails. The Comet Moth is still fairly common in its native Madagascar.
Just some ducks. Beautiful colors!!
