Artist's Description

Superb Blue wren in taking off. This is a non-breeding male with typical brown plumage, black beak and blue tail rather than the superb blue on the cheek and head, and ring on the neck.

This wren was on my car windscreen looking at himself in the glass! And he hopped around and stood on my left rear vision mirror. Luckily my camera was in the car and the front window was down, and I was able to sneak into the back seat and take a few photos. He obliged by coming back several times allowing me to take some good photos sitting in the right back seat looking through the the left front window! I was even luckier to get this amazing shot of him taking off. I used the flash for this shot and I noticed for this, and a few others I used a flash with, his reaction time was amazing. He was quick enough to be able to move off after being scared off with the pre-flash flash of light, allowing me to capture him in motion.

Taken near Longwood, Adelaide Hills, South Australia. Taken with a Nikon D80, 18-135mm Nikon lens.
