I was just replying to a commenter that I hadn’t seen a Superb Fairy-wren for weeks and hoped they hadn’t found a new home when all of a sudden, 2 juveniles – a male and a female – landed on the balcony fence.
I just caught a movement over the top of my computer screen (so now new followers know why I have my desk in front of the lounge windows).
The female flew away before I had a chance to take the lens cap off my (newly) repaired 150-500mm lens and aim.
So I clumsily followed the young male as it wandered through the herbs and eventually managed to capture a couple of shots of its back before it, too, flew away.
It’s many weeks since I’ve seen these cute, fast-moving little wrens. It’s so rare for them to stand still and pose for a shot.
