This is a very nicely done shot, Richard.

Very sharp, detailed image, Richard. Nicely photographed.

Thanks Mike for your complimentary comments. Much appreciated.

I'd love to know how you get all these photos of fairy-wrens. Nearly every day I hear on my block what I'm fairly sure are red-backed fairy-wrens but I've never even seen, let alone photographed, one!

They have become accustomed to our presence and I can generally walk about and they are comfortable with my presence.
But they're very flitty and don't stay in one place for long. It's frustrating at times and I've many duds or complete misses.

We've about 12 to 15 that frequent here.
Thankfully they've made this place home and last year they raised 2 families.

Nice! I'm guessing you snatched a moment when it got its head out of the water... but I love the water drop.

Lame-Duck wrote in post #18848236 (external link)
Cool shot, Melissa. I like the water dribble off his bill.

Thanks, guys! Yes, he had just lifted his head out of the water here. :-)

Two excellent shots, Bob.
