I think I could camp out in your backyard and never run out of photo opps for a couple of months! :) These birds are so difficult to entice to a yard - the conditions have to be "just so" for them to set up hearth and home...yours must have just what it takes! Lucky you - a gorgeous shot of "bluebird food seduction"! :)
