Fairy Wren

Here are a few shots of the Australian Supurb Fairy Wren taken last week in the Georges River NP in SE Australia

I could hear a small group of wrens  twittering in dense vegetation on the shore of a fresh water lagoon.

I did my best to get close, having to walk out on a thick mat of water plants until I started to sink. I found an unsteady perch on a fallen tree and waited, and waited. It was hot and the mosquitos were doing their best to get through my chemical screen. The ZD300 was feeling extra heavy in my sweaty hands, and holdng the camera I had no hand-hold to keep myself steady

This little male Fairy Wren made a brief appearance. He didn't get into a nice position in the light and didn't keep still at all.  I was too uncomfortable to wait for a 'perfect' shot, so I took what I could get.

All shots E-5,  ZD300mm, EC-14, hand held, IS1, PP in LR4 and cropped.
