When a male Superb Fairy-wren reaches 4-5 years of age he no longer moults out of breeding plumage.
But this makes him a stand out for predators and tends not to last too long.
Was lucky to find one on the weekend.

I'm glad it's not just me, but the feathers look so glossy & they're hard catch without the reflection making the feathers look moulded/plastic.

Most morning there are two kookaburras on a branch of a tree opposite our living room. But this morning they got company....

Nice shot, great composition, all lined up for you! The light is just right, any brighter & you would start to lose detail.

Not sure about this one, it took a bit of work to get it to where it is, but I like the wing detail in it.

It was early (late autumn) morning - had to crank the ISO up to 12800. So very little light... :)
