The Courting Game

Great bowerbird

Chlamydera nuchalis 

A magical moment in time, capturing the courting game between these two beautiful birds, as the male great bowerbird used various trinkets to entice the female into the bower. It often seemed like the male looked to me to seek assurance on the selection process.
