Default Aussie Blue Wrens chasing insects

G'day all

Just spent a week at an out-of-the-way park in the Aussie highlands [near Bonalbo NSW for locals]. My van / RV was parked alongside a row of small bushes, and each day this family / concubine of Wrens would entertain me. A wren family usually consists of one adult male in full plumage + multiple female / juvenile others. The adult bird is around 6cm / 2 inches in body size + tail

exif = X-S1 @ 26x / 600mm equiv; ISO-100-400; "S" mode from 1/400s to 1/1200s

1- Standing 'proud' - watching & listening ...

Very hard to get them sharp & clear - they move very quickly anyway & with max zoom also, I got lots of tails + empty frames!!. more on Flickr site if you wish to view

As always, comments welcome
Regards, Phil
