    1. This sort of reminded me of angels, blue angels. This was an accident. He landed as I took the photo. I am glad it turned out that way.

  2. That is one gorgeous photo. I saw a bluebird this morning for the first time in a very long time. I know they winter around here but they have been scarce. I think its the male checking out the nesting box which means I need to put up the one I took down so he has some choices.

    1. I have seen lots this winter. They seem to come in groups, flocks. Their color is beautiful against the winter landscape. I need to clean out the nesting boxes.

  17. Nice photo, Michelle. The blue is really stunning. Do the bluebirds nest on your property? I see them once or twice a year (including just this weekend, by coincidence) but my yard is not open enough to really appeal to them.

    1. Thanks, Sharon. Yes, some nest on my property in the bluebird nesting boxes. Where I used to live it was rare to see them, but here I see them in flocks. I am glad...I so enjoy watching them.

  20. Hello,
    I visited your blog today. Your photos are so lovely. The picture of the blue bird is wonderful. While I was reading, I noticed the song "What a Wonderful World." That song is very special to me and reminds me of my dad. Me and my daughters started a blog, and we would love it if you could visit us and follow. I would enjoy coming back to visit with you. Your blog is filled with beutiful pictures. I hope to hear from you, and have a lovely evening.

    1. I did not see many of them when I lived further north, but here they come in flocks and fly around the feeders. I am so glad because they are one of my favorite birds.

  22. That was a brilliant candid shot of a blue bird. The blue color goes well with orange. The contrast of the colors are perfect!

    1. Thanks, Julie. I use a Nikon D3100, and I just love it. I got it as a birthday gift, and it has been such a pleasure to use...easy, fun, and allows for so many options. I have not used a Canon or any other camera, so I can't compare.

    Have a nice weekend!
