While in Margaret River, we visited the Berry Farm. We go there once a year mostly to stock up on jam (and then the jams/conserves we get last us until the next year, lol, so it works out). But this time we actually decided to stop off for lunch, because my stomach has been a *tad* more reliable lately. We ended up sitting outside in a sheltered area, and got some visitors while we ate. Delightful, colourful visitors. :D

I tend to think Western Australia is particularly blessed with the male splendid fairy wren. It's just a solidly blue little bird when he has his breeding plumage. And so glossy and bright. Seeing him behave in such a friendly manner (hoping for scraps from our food) was delightful.

One of his harem females was in this shot too! Yay sexual dimorphism!
