The male Superb Fairy-wren is wearing his winter finery once again. He kept his distance and my toes were freezing but, just as I was about to abandon him, he posed against the neighbour’s water tank. The colour combination intrigued me and I was not disappointed. I love these.






Thanks for looking!

    • Hi Paula, Until last year, I didn’t know the male changed plumage from his normal fairy-wren colour during breeding season. I just thought he was nomadic! I watched out for the change and got a series of photos, but this year he caught me by surprise.
