Landscape Photographer from the South West of Western Australia

Blue wrens

We are fortunate to have a lot of blue wrens (the Splendid Fairy Wren) on our property, and they often come on our balcony. I used a flash to photograph this one who was foraging on the deck. The Nikon flashes fire a preflash to measure the light. When photographing people you have to watch they are not “fast blinkers” ie the preflash causes them to blink, and you get a picture of the person with their eyes shut. The blue wren must have very fast reflexes, because the preflash startled him, and I caught him in this very inelegant position.
