The elusive blue wren

I have tried to photograph superb blue wrens so many times as they move through the yard with their harem. The only real success I've had is with an almost dead female wren. Not quite the same. Today I spied them flitting though and grabbed my 300 zoom lens as I dashed outside.
Here are my photos:
I swear he was there when I pressed the button. They are so quick!
Ah, there he is, see? That blue blur. Now if only I could sort out this manual focus before he disappears again...

...This is how it usually goes and I end up with a bunch of useless photos.

And then a miracle happened. He popped up on top of the bush right in front of me, and showed off is plumage in the sun.
See how handsome he is?!
Oh yes, you're handsome from that angle, too.

And then he was gone.
