[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Do you think I could get him to stay still!!!
This little bird I believe to be a White-browed Scrubwren.(Sericornis frontalis)
Found all along the Eastern coastline from Cairns, to the Western coastline of Western Australia.
What gives it away is the yellow in the eye and the plumage of white just under the eye.
After several attemps I did finally get him to perch where I wanted this was after whatching his habits for some time. (it pays to be patient)

Outstanding composition, Paul! Your patience was well-rewarded. And the colours and details are spot-on, right down to the bright light in this little fellow's eye
