This male Superb Fairy Wren had just had a bath at Laratinga Wetlands, Mt Barker, South Australia, yesterday and sat out on a reed to fluff out his feathers and dry them off. May 2011, Canon 40D with Canon 70-200 2.8 IS with 2x extender.

This image featured in The Woman Photographer in May 2011. Thank you moderators!

And featured in The Birds in June 2011. Thank you!

I live in the beautiful Adelaide Hills of South Australia which are a constant inspiration to me in my photography. As an observer of nature and the world around around me, I find many subjects here which I try to portray in an artistic and interesting way. Please contact me if there are any of my images you wish to purchase or otherwise use.

    What a marvellous capture of this wee beauty, Barb. Such lovely colouring. I’ve never seen a Superb Fairy Wren before. What a very apt name!
