Artist's Description

These beautiful flirty little birds are frequent visitors to my garden, but are incredibly difficult to photograph (well, for me anyway). Sometimes they nest close to my house and it is a wonderful experience to watch the babies hatch and eventually leave the nest.

The grey fantail (Rhipidura fuliginosa) is common across the whole of Australia and makes the most exquisite wineglass-shaped nest, a perfect cup with a long tail tapering down. The nest is formed around a branch or twig, with the cup resting on top of the branch and the tail below.

Canon EOS 400D, Canon 400mm L lens, f/7.1, 1/400th, ISO 400.
