Male Superb Fairy-wren.
I can find myself power walking along with world issues on my mind when hear a trilling bird call from shrubs or long grass. Suddenly I realise I'm carrying a large camera and I become transfixed on tiny, little elusive subjects with upright tails hopping about. I find myself fiddling with camera controls and stumbling about for untold hours. I have buckets of the same photos from my film days but when ever I see Australian Fairy-wrens I am lost. I regret I messed up the exposure of these pics. (I should have underexposed them) Australian contrasts are so strong. The light is so white and shadows so dark.
