To radość "złapać" aparatem ślicznego ptaka, na którego się czekało. Pozdrawiam.
That's the joy of "catch" the camera lovely bird, which they have been waiting for. Yours.

Love that little Fairy Wren! I like how you framed it in the 1st photo too.

Dianne said...

What a pretty boy is he ...... you must have felt really chuffed Carole to have finally captured this little gem of a bird who loves to flit away just as we go to press the shutter. Well done!

These are great little birds - I saw them in the garden on my (now) wife's parents on the first day I was in Australia. I have had a special fondness for them ever since.

Great photos Carole, I am never quick enough to snap them when I see them out walking.

This beauty is aptly named- with those blue colors it looks like a fairy.
Awesome captures, Carole.

That first capture is wonderful!! I really like the frame you have used with it!!
I have decided that I will have to learn to get around the stupid Blogger issue, if it is not going to go away...

Carole M. said...

I think they might be my favourite little bird here but then there are so many wonderful birds --- this one just happens to come around at this time of year, just for a short period looking for insects in the garden.

JUDY: Blogger - you can either upload your pics online in a gallery and use the url to link to your post, OR, as John http://hwyfly.blogspot.com.au/ had made mention recently on his blog, the HTML option will still allow you to browse your images to upload.

Oh he is Gorgeous. At first glance from the post above I thought of a chuparosa, but boy was happy to see the mate of that wonderful little fluff ball up top. Sweet captures all of them.
I will be following your blog for sure. I adore birds and painting them is becoming a passion.
peace n abundance,
