Superb Fairy-wren

Superb Fairy-wren (Image ID 37078)
CommentI watched these two birds interact for several minutes while attempting to photograph them together. They were constantly on the move, and the male would approach the female from time to time to feed her, and then fly away again. Most of the photos turned out blurred, but I decided to submit this one as it was the sharpest, and shows the interest the male is taking in the female.
