Superb Fairy-wren by roger smith

… male Superb Fairy-wren (Malurus cyaneus) … in breeding plumage … photographed at Cleland Wildlife Park, Adelaide Hills, South Australia.

Sony DSLR-A700 f/6.3 1/60 sec ISO-800 Focal length 200mm

Now retired, I have found the time to take my cameras and equipment to some fascinating places …in Australia, and countries around the world including Canada, Alaska, Zambia, Zimbabwe, South Africa Kenya and Zanzibar.
I mainly shoot landscapes , animals (domestic and wild) flora and fauna and anything to do with nature … I am owned by a wife and two cats and I’m a citizen of Adelaide, the capital city of South Australia …thanks for stopping by.
