As small as a gumleaf!
This is one of the junior fairy wrens that were bobbing around in the summer
grasses this morning. Most of my shots were just a blur where the bird WAS
when I focussed, this shot actually captured him - just!
Little bird watching the skies above her home
It seemed to me that she had built her nest in the big hollow of the tree and was keeping watch - she didn't move off when I appeared below her but stayed watching.
Mother wren watching me
Her nestlings were out and about foraging amongst the dry grasses, both father and mother had their eye on me, but mother got close enough for me to capture a shot of her.

My Second bird shot
I nearly got the whole bird in the frame, & I'm getting better with the light direction!

Kurrajong and hakea
The Kurrajong isn't native to our area and has been doing it tough
through the drought, but its a survivor!
Gum trees continuously shed twigs, gumnuts, leaves to litter the pathways
but these are still up in the tree for this shot. Diffuse filter.
