Bluebirds Interacting

BetterPhoto.com Editor's Pick   Bluebirds Interacting
Bluebirds Interacting
The bluebirds are beginning to get pretty active in our yard. In fact, they have been dive bombing the mockingbirds that are pretty feisty themselves, but the bluebirds are now nesting in our nesting box. Anyway, I was able to capture this shot this morning through our window with my Canon 7D Mark II, Canon 300 mm L lens at f6.7, 1/750, ISO 160.

    Great stop action, Shirley! The wing spreads and feather details on both birds are perfect - as is the clarity - especially shooting thru a window! (had no idea bluebirds would take on those aggressive mockers - enjoyed your commentary:)

Thank you, Katherine. Yeah, this is the first year we have had them in our yard, we have seen them in the area, but not in our yard. We put up a nest box, and they are building their nest, so we should have a family soon. <><

Beautiful capture, Shirley! Love how you can see the eye of the female and both have their wings up in the air. Well done!
