Female Bluebird

A close encounter with a female Bluebird.




I never did see the male, but appreciated her beauty just the same...

Yes she is very cute!!! Excellent capture. I prefer the first one cause there are no branches in front of her, it is better, and she is also looking in your direction which gives a certain dynamic to the shot!

They are just the most beautiful birds Hannibal. I'm hoping to see some at my new house...just can't wait to get there.

Wonderful pictures. I'm a big fan of the particular way you shot this bird. Just enough of the natural vegitation and washed out background. The male is probably out earning his living.

She is a beauty - and her subtle color make her look all the prettier on the limb with the new spring buds!

By the way..I left you a note about my moon shot with the original...you have a very good eye to spot a phoney ;-)

I like the first pose the best...looks like she is saying "look at me" Bluebirds are so friendly and pretty.

She's beautiful! She's much more colorful than the female cardinal. I don't see as many bluebirds as I used to around my neck of the woods. I do have a cardinal couple living in my bushes, so I see them everyday.
