The 30-day challenge, day 29

Fairy-wren, watercolour on paper,  21 x 14.8 cm 

We have these gorgeous Fairy-wrens in our garden. We used to have our house fenced in by barbed wire, and they'd land on the wire, or in the rather large weeds behind it. We have cleaned up since then by removing the barbed wire and slashing the place. Looks a lot better. Barbed wire doesn't have a very homely 'vibe', if you know what I mean. The only downside is that the birds have moved on as well. We actually have to go for a walk in order to spot them.
