Hi Tony and all,

I was more fortunate.

Old age and ill-health saw me relaxed in an easy-chair in my daughter's
home.  On a farm near Warwick, Qld.  Chair in a sun-room with extra
entertainment in the form of a beautiful male Blue Wren checking around the
windows on a number of occasions.

Obviously much too smart to be looking at his reflection.  No, he was
checking the spider-webs.  I guess he'd take a spider if he found one, but I
reckon what he was mainly gathering were insects attracted to the house
lights the previous night and caught in the webs.

Anyway, delightful to watch.
