Superb Blue Wrens at the loungeroom window
A pair of Superb Blue Wrens (Malurus cyaneus) come everyday, at least ten times a day, from dawn to dusk, to catch insects that they find hanging around our loungeroom windows and in the garden in front of the house. Despite the name, only the male has blue plumage, but the female is also beautiful. It took quite a lot of patience to get a shot of them in a good position, since they flit around pretty rapidly most of the time.
