  5. What a nice pose this bluebird provided! I like the shot with the bird perched on the light. Nice one.

  9. haha. that’s a great capture. i don’t think i’ve ever seen a bluebird in the wild.

  10. You would wonder why a bird would take such a bright colour! It will be spotted by predators so easily! But not if it sits on this lamp 🙂

  12. Why, hellow there. Could you be more a more vibrant and lovely blue? I think not. Really great colors.

  15. Love the greens. Bid is nice also.

  16. You actually may be right, Rian, about it’s being a bluebird. My sister in Michigan has seen one like this. NOT the same as a bluejay!

  17. i’ve never seen a bird this blue. very nice catch. the bird seems as interested in you are you are in it.

  18. My, that IS blue. The bluebird of happiness, perhaps. Very nice. I’ve not seen a picture of one of these before. Blue birds here are grey!

  19. That is true indeed, a really blue bird.. great shot.

  20. Correct, and more than correct, a beautiful little fellow from our universal fairy tales 🙂

  21. Very cool Rian! This is indeed a Blue Bird! I posted a photo of one of these this past winter. I had never seen them before in this area!

  22. we don’t have birds like this in the UK – shame!

  23. Good shot of the bluebird Rian… I just started seeing them back around this area last week.
