BREAKFAST GUESTS: Lismore Heights, around 8am on November 8.

THIS photo was taken by Kerri Ohalloran of two regular visitors to her place at Lismore Heights.

"We spend most of our time on the back veranda because of the beautiful view and the birds that share the veranda with us," she said.

"The lorikeets have been coming to us for years and are quite tame and we call them all Laurie and Larry. There does seem to be a pecking order with two very bossy birds, but generally there can be up to 10 beautiful lorikeets on the railing all talking to us. They embody for me the acceptance of this region, the friendliness and sharing quality I've always found in the Lismore region."
