Eastern Bluebirds

As promised here are some more Eastern Bluebird images.All of them were taken the same day at the same little park.

I had gone to this park hoping for a pair of Mockingbirds,but alas, none were seen.
These Bluebirds were a great substitute. 

They seems a little upset at my presence,so I knew they had to have a nest in the area.


In  perfect world the background on these picture would be different and that angled post would not be there,but we don't live in a perfect world.
I still like the shot,because of the sparkle in his eye.

Just another very similar shot.I just couldn't stop shooting,because they are so beautiful.

Here is a final parting shot,showing that lovely blue back.


Thought for Today:
The love of God has no limits.

  9. Gorgeous, Ruth... I love seeing the Bluebirds... We haven't had many around this year --which is quite a change from other years... On another note, we have had alot of hummingbirds this year... Nice substitute.
    Hugs,

  11. Wonderful series! I spotted my fist indigo bunting yesterday but only managed to get a few frames through the bedroom window and they were disappointing. I'm not giving up though!

  12. Ruth, definitely a good substitute! Nice shots!
    When I was a boy we had Bluebirds nesting in our backyard, in a birdhouse I had built! I was quite proud of that!

  18. What a photo session you had there, your shutter must have been hot, Great Shots!

  19. Those bluebirds are absolute darlings.
    I wonder, with your photoshop skills could you perhaps either blur out the post or lift the bird and twig out and paste them on a other background? Have a little play around, you could come up with something quite brilliant.

  20. I know these little birds are in our area, but we rarely see them; so your beautiful photos were a real treat this morning. Thanks for sharing them.

  26. I have to agree Ruth, you can never have enough Bluebird pictures.
    Love your thought for today.

  27. We do wish sometimes they would sit in a different place for better background. Who can ever stop photographing a Bluebird when he sits still long enough for multiple photos? The 3rd one is my favorite.

  28. I'm jealous of the wonderful shots! Perfect shots are nearly impossible. These are great the way they are.

  30. They're such beautiful little birds. God truly has so many wonderful and colorful creations for us to enjoy.

  31. You are doing very well with capturing all these lovely outdoor sights. You must have a super camera to get shots like these. Perfect birds.

    ReplyDelete
  32. You definitely caught their sharp little eyes! They are such beautiful birds and you got great shots of them! Enjoyed your quote today too - I agree wholeheartedly!

    P.S. I cropped the Blue Heron photo a little - I was 10 feet away in my kayak from him. Normally he would've flown away but he decided to tolerate my presence so he could swallow his fish - ha,ha!

  33. I can see why you kept shooting, Ruth - they are beautiful birds. Well captured.

    You might be familiar with this hymn - lyrics are here.

  34. Oh, wonderful photos of the sweet little bluebird, Ruth! I've seen bluebirds in my area, too, but I can never get close enough to get a good pic with my little camera. Your shots are so clear and sharp!

  35. Such beautiful birds! If I want to see our Western bluebird I have to travel half an hour down the road to a local park. We did it last year. Must try to make the effort this year before it is too late.

  38. Lovely bluebird shots Ruth. I have seen some amazing things in the last few weeks - but I have missed the birds. In Europe I think I only saw 3 ... seriously - 3 birds the whole time I was there. My husband kept my feeders filled at home - but I truly missed the birds!

  39. Abe keeps hoping someday a blue bird will fly into our yard on it's way someplace. But so far no such luck.

  40. Pretty photos of pretty bluebirds!

    Thanks for your note, Ruth. I'm playing catch up today. Some of my favorites while I was gone are your daisies, the waving bluebird, the eastern kingbird with the dragonfly, and Jake's photos that you shared.

  41. What beautiful bluebirds, Ruth! I haven't seen in birds such as that around my yard, so I'm so glad that I get to see them through your lens. Thanks you so much for visiting my blog and for your sweet comments. They mean a lot!!! Have a wonderful and bless day.

  43. Ruth, How are you? I love the pictures of the bluebirds--they are such delightful little birds. I loved looking at Jake's pictures--the last one with the reflection is pure magic--so,so beautiful. It is sometimes hard to take things out from the past, but I think in the end that it is good to do--we bring those warm memories to life again, and that can't be a bad thing. Have a lovely week. Mickie :)
