The fairy-wren and the eagle

Poking about near Fence Track at the weekend I was captivated by this Superb Fairy-wren – a superlative male in full breeding plumage. You know how sometimes a ‘sixth sense’ tells you that you’re being watched?

Male Superb Fairy-wren, Fence Track Muckleford State Forest, 2nd August 2015.

This Wedge-tailed Eagle cruised lazily overhead – causing a temporary distraction. I’ll let you decide which is the more impressive.

It’s hard to decide who is more impressive!
