CommentA very tight shot of a male Superb Fairy Wren. I like that you can see the structure of the feathers both above and below the beak as well as over the bird's head. It also shows the colouring of the feathers of a male before it reaches its full breeding colours which is not something shown in guides like the The Australian Bird Guide. The structure of the beak is also very clear and it is possible to just see a reflction of my house in the bird's eye.
