Two of Anakie's Gems

These are wild Rainbow Laurakeets enjoying a breakfast of toast at the Retreat Creek campground. They have been terribly spoiled by the campers and the local residents, but who could resist them? The color of their plumage: brilliant blues, greens, yellows, and oranges, match those of the sapphires extracted from the nearby ground.
