Superb Fairy Wren in the Grass

The wonderful thing about our garden is the number of birds and the variety. They are lovely things but usually so hard to photograph. I managed to get a good picture of this Superb Fairy Wren on the grass he had his girl with him. I'll have to upload a picture of the lady later. The little fellow was exploring after having a drink and a wash. Coming into a dry period now and getting a little hotter as summer is on the way.

Superb Fairy Wren

Winter is well and truly set in, June is almost over. The morning has an occasional frost and the birds seem to be braver when searching for food. I spied this Superb Fairy Wren in the garden. It was with its lady friends who lack the blue colour of the male. I've been trying to take a photo of this little fellow for quite some time but he is usually too quick to get a good picture. I just managed to get this snap of him while he was checking out the bird feeder. Previously he'd been hopping through the onions, celery and beans in the vegetable patch.
