[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
These two little Blue wrens (male = blue and black head; female = brown head) were doing their courtship ritual on top of our bush house. They were rather funny to watch as they would fly to the window pecking at their reflections and then back to the top the bushhouse and sing and dance. They would repeat this process over and over again.
Then they would have a little break. Take a look.

Hi Claudia

Good shot. Shame the guy is OOF, but the Lovely Lady is wonderful. They are both giving this song their all. Good light and detail. Nice colour. Not sure about the framing. Thanks

Great detail capture on the female. It even manages to show the slight red around her eyes. The slight lack of focus on the male actually works here, gives it the depth of field it needs.

They really do love their reflections, just need to see what they've done to our car lately.
