Strike a pose!
A variegated fairy-wren stops just long enough to pose for the camera in Oxley Creek Common, Queensland.
This week’s reader photo was taken by Brodie in Brisbane, Queensland.
“I’m a 14 year old bird and photography enthusiast living in Brisbane. This shot of a female variegated fairy-wren (Malurus lamberti) was taken at Oxley Creek Common at mid-morning. I was following a group of wrens when this one flew to a fallen log close to me and faced the light, sitting for just long enough for me to get a photo. Usually fairy-wrens are skittish until they realise you’re not a threat, and start to come closer like this one did,” says Brodie.
