Crimson Rosella, Platyceras elegans (Race: elegans), photographed in outer south east Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.


  1. Beautiful rosellas. Nice photo of them too. They’re in our orchard eating the last of the apples and pears lately…Not these particular rosellas, presumably! I love that chinking, bell-like sound they make. Reminds me of my childhood in the Dandenong Ranges.

  2. Funny! yeah these ones were at Mt Dandenong National Park. So, I guess it makes sense if they remind you of your childhood!

  3. Nice photo

  4. Thanks!
