Superb Fairy-wren

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!



I started blogging in an effort to keep the old brain cells alive. I'm writing a fantasy series, I take more MOOCs than I can handle, and am trying to get my Nikon D3000 off auto. I live in Victoria, Australia, with my husband and our dog, Vika.

    1. 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.
