Eastern Bluebirds!

The male spent a lot of time foraging from posts.

With freshly charged camera batteries, today after work I headed over to Pope Farm Park to see if any Eastern Bluebirds were there. With reports of bluebirds from other parts of the state, I figured this particular bluebird trail would have some activity by now. I'm pretty happy with the results; the late afternoon lighting was effective for capturing pleasing portraiture.

He also kept a close watch on the house.

Nice pose!

Show us those lovely bluebird colors!
