Artist's Description

Finally i have the shot that i am happy with to me this shows why he is called the Superb lyrebird and i only wish you could hear his song..Yarra Valley. Australia.One of the great exhibitions of the Australian forests is the courtship display of the male superb lyrebird Firstly he builds a small mound (of dirt) upon which he stands so he is better seen and heard He then spreads his magnificent tail feathers up and over his head into the Lyre shape The tail is only spread and displayed for mating courtship purposes He then sings to his intended, his own songs and mimicking other birds and noises As he sings he moves about (dances) to attract the females attention
