This female Superb Fairy wren (Malurus cyaneus) was bringing home lunch to her babies hidden in a nest. Not sure what the insect is, but I’m sure it’s delicious for baby birds! Taken at Laratinga Wetlands, Mt Barker, South Australia. Canon 40D, Canon 70-200 2.8 IS with 2x extender and external flash. Feb 2011.
