This female Superb Fairywren (Malurus cyaneus), also known as the blue wren, is having a rest in the afternoon sun following a hard days work.

Captured in Sydney, Australia, by the sea.

Canon 400D, as is.

I live in Australia and enjoy bushwalking in the great outdoors, especially the world heritage listed Blue Mountains National Park.

My photographic interests are pretty much related to Australian landscapes, rustic Australia, historic Australia, Australian wildlife, flora, fauna, birds, etc. Guess I love the country I was born and live in.

    Lovely capture Michael. You are so lucky to get this wren to pose for you. There are many of them where we live but I still haven’t got a shot of any as yet. They are so small and always hopping around. One day maybe. Congrats on all the features. Very well deserved.

  • Thanks Ralph. I understand the frustration…..lucky for me, this one decided to have a rest!
