Red Backed Fairy Wren

Discussion in 'Birds' started by Bob G, Jul 1, 2008.

  1. I went up to Coolum this afternoon wanting to capture a Brahminy Kite in flight. I have seen it around there recently. While I was waiting a couple of fairy wrens appeared in the area alongside the beach. I managed to stalk them for a while as the Kite didn't appear. The light was still pretty harsh around 3 pm and this was one of the few shots where the background wasn't to cluttered.

  2. Now that's a pretty little bird! Nicely captured too, except his branch seems to be a tad hot to me. Perhaps it's just my old eyes. Still a nice shot!
