Rainbow Colored Camouflage

Rainbow colored camouflage, some may think, what a ridiculous idea, what a ridiculous idea, for rainbows are rare and high in the air, so what benefit would it have? Unless you were trying, to reckon a rainbow parade but that may come, to haunt you in the end.  Yet, there is a bird, which is quite beautiful and has indeed adapted, wearing the colors of the rainbow and well suited to live in the tropics. It can hide among exotic fruits and blend in among the flowers of paradise. The Rainbow Lorikeet sounding, like some strange creature, from Doctor Seuss but that is it’s name and the male and female look the same.Truly a pretty Polly parroting, the colors of the rainbow. Oddly, they make rainbow camouflage work.
