Very nice shot of a not very common little bird, Rob. Looks like he is fluffed up against the cold. The birdwatchers claimed to have seen them at the end of our road (30 kilometres away) but I have never seen one up here.

Yeah, it was quite cool when I was there, and it was well after sunset, although the sky made the photo tinted red. I didn't expect to see him at all. It's the Splendid Fairywren I've specifically looked for out west,, but no luck.

Larry says it better than I could, Rob. Terrific image - perfectly composed and what a dark, rich blue.

Thanks Jer! I'm hoping to go back to the same area and get more photos at a lower ISO - ie when it's not after sunset. I'm also hoping that I might get useful photos of the Crested Grebes I saw in the same area.
