Still from the archives - a Wren (Troglodytes troglodytes) taken last April, perching on a budding wisteria twig.
Many thanks for your C&Cs on yesterday's Robin - very much appreciated as always
Looks like a well fed wren - love these little birds. Carole
A very good up and under shot as it were, the detail excellent as is the pose glance away from camera.......hope you got it's best side, Sylvia: I rather like the little claw up in the air instead of grasping......reminds me of an old aunt who always held her little finger like this when supping her tea from her bone china teacup.
A lovely image, Sylvia, he looks well fed Carol
Another cracker Sylvia, I always wanted to know why they're latin name Troglodytes troglodytes is what it is?.......Any ideas anyone?
Aw, how pretty. So difficult to capture these little birds as they're so quick.
A lovely sharp capture. Especially considering how skittish they are and how tiny too. Nice catchlight too.
Etymology: the genus name (Greek troglodytai, from trogle, "a hole" (properly "a hole formed by gnawing" and dyein, "to enter") refers to the tendency of these wrens to enter small crevices and similar areas as they look for food.
Hopefully that answers that.
Very well exposed against the sky and very well detailed plumage and eye Sylvia.
