Mr Superb Fairy Wren

This pic doesnt do him justice at all, but getting any pic of these is pretty tough. Keeping in mind the old adage "A bird in the hand, beats two in the bush" , here 'tis.

They are tiny - and fast - they almost blur as they move thru the greenery!

WOW WOW WOW you did it Lavender! That didn't take long to cross the Fricken Fairies off your 'good photograph' list ... or are the females and juveniles on the list too ;)

Ces said...

But if it looks like a good shot, maybe I just need to have the peepers checked? Ive got a chick pic to come!!!! Thank you Anon!

Ces That blue is outrageous, glad you like it too! Youre probally right, Ive been told Im too hard on myself before, enough times to say, you know, maybe they are right? Thanks Ces!!

What a darling little ball of feathers. Reminds me of a Christmas ornament.

Lavender said...

Oh Periette! What a grand idea! You might know Ive been talking about making little faux-birds, perhaps I will give them a try...Im in the market for a new hobby....but Id never thought of making them as christmas tree ornaments, what a grand idea!

Bevson said...

What an amazing bird. The color is fantastic. He looks small. Is he the size of a chickadee?? Or a winter wren?

Lavender said...

Bevson Well spotted! He is just about a 1/2 inch smaller than the Black-Capped Chickadee...they were one of my fave birds in the US - such cheerful calls they have! :)
