Superb Blue Wren - Malurus cyaneus
With its gleaming, velvety blue-and-black plumage, the male Superb Fairy-wren is easily distinguished. These ‘coloured’ males are often accompanied by a band of brown ‘jenny wrens’, often assumed to be a harem of females, but a proportion of them are males which have not yet attained their breeding plumage. The contents of these birds’ untidy nests — a clutch of three or four eggs — are not necessarily the progeny of the ‘coloured’ male, as there is much infidelity among female fairy-wrens, with many eggs resulting from extra-pair liaisons.

I love to photograph Australian wildlife and try bringing the captured wildlife closer to my audience. By showing these beautiful animals I hope to make the viewer aware of the fragility of nature and what we need to protect. •
Every day our planet loses about 200 species of plants, bird, and mammals.
I hope to capture a fraction of them before they are gone…
