I think I might adopt this little guy and his lady friend as they love my car’s mirrors. A Superb Fairy-wren, Malurus cyaneus checking himself in the mirror. He let me get to almost within a metre to take this photo. this photo was taken in Coffin Bay, South Australia.

  • They have been back again several times today already. I have to go out and clean the mirrors each time in case I get a chance of a good reflection of them both at the same time however he hogs the mirror most of the time.

    He’s probably wanting to box the reflection to keep the other male away from his girl. :) Great capture. Congras on your feature

  • You could be right Susan. Thank you for your comment.
