A few weeks ago I had a first time visitor to the little feeder which turned into a bird bath after the rainy week. I was thrilled to see the Western Bluebird in my yard!

Well, she like the temperature, and atmosphere so she decided to stay and have a bath. Luckily my camera was nearby.

Eyeing up the tub, and making sure the coast is clear overhead…

“Do you mind! I’m bathing here!” That look really got me thinking…”man I’m a voyeur!” 🙂

Do you mind I'm bathing here!

All clean! She had a good shake and flew away after this image was taken. I hope she comes back!

Western Bluebird

I took these images through the window so they’re a bit soft. I used the dehaze feature to help that a bit. It’s a pretty neat feature!

  1. Such a delightful set of Photographs and such a lovely little bird.. Thank you! Sue ( I came via Lynz’s reblogging of your post )

  2. Reblogged this on lynz real cooking and commented:
    A post that I loved so much. This was so cute and at the same time very beautiful!

  3. She’s beautiful :-). Sometimes rain has its up sides!

  4. We had bluebirds nest in our yard in Southern New Jersey. I love them so much and used to cry when the babies didn’t succeed and even when they fledged. When moving to Western Colorado I was so happy to see that we have both Western and Mountain Bluebirds here. I saw one this morning… so bright against the white snow. Beautiful post!

    • How wonderful to have two types of Bluebirds there! They are lovely. Thank you so much for the comment!

  5. What a sweetheart! Glad you sighted her, and I don’t think she minded you! 🙂

  6. She does have that look. I think you should have offered her a warm towel. She is a beauty.

  7. Such a beauty! Thanks, a pleasure reading your posts!

  8. And a beauty this one is! Congrats!

  9. So beautiful and fun! I love your writing along with the pictures! What amazing shots! thanks for sharing these!

    • Thank you so much Lynn! You’re so kind to give me such a great compliment! My head is swelling. 🙂 xx

      • You really are so talented and I was surprised to see you painting! What a great thing to be able to do! I cannot draw a line haha. I have a few kids who paint and I am always thrilled to see this! I love the birdie just beautiful!

        • Thank you so much Lynn for that lovely compliment! I don’t think I can paint. I try, but think it’s something I will be trying to learn the rest of my life. Photography is SO MUCH EASIER! 🙂

  10. It is a neat feature but then, the softness suits the subject really well I think. How wonderful to see a Western Bluebird AND to have had your camera at the ready. Wow!

    • Thank you so much Melissa! I don’t always have my camera ready, and I should learn to. A lot of times I run to get it, and by the time I get back the bird is gone. Sigh.
