Blue-breasted Fairy-wren, another small Australian bush bird
22

A not-so-common species of Fairy-wren, the Blue-breasted.  Found in SW Western Australia and South Australia.  This male I found deep inside a bush and it emerged with a small caterpillar just long enough for me to squeeze off several shots.

In good sunlight the almost black breast is a deep blue.
