Bluebirds for Robin


Female Bluebird
"You lookin' at ME?"

For Robin at Robin's Nesting Place who thinks she may be coming down with the flu but was rejoicing in bluebird sightings today. May these bluebirds bring you cheer, Robin, and joy and good health and chase away the icky flu!!!! We hates the flu!!!

But we loves the bluebirds. The male, below and the female, above, were photographed only days apart in February, 2007. I hope you enjoy them and that they bring you good health, Robin!!!

No Photoshopping was done to enhance his coloration.
Just a perfectly gray day and the perfect angle of reflection.
Perfection.

What an extraordinary color! Beautiful shots, Debi. I know we have bluebirds here in Nova Scotia, but they don't frequent us here in town. They're lovely.

I caught a glimpse of one once when we were on vacation down in the US but your photo really shows what brilliant colour they are. So pleased you're enjoying your new camera!

Debi, the colour of these little beauties is astounding. I've never seen one in the flesh so I'm enjoying these photos immeasurably.

Aw, the bluebirds are sooo cute. And, yes, I'm looking at you, Ms. Bluebird! ;-)
