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…
At her toilette
“Do you mind! I’m bathing here!” That look really got me thinking…”man I’m a voyeur!” 🙂
All clean! She had a good shake and flew away after this image was taken. I hope she comes back!
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!

A post that I loved so much. This was so cute and at the same time very beautiful!
She’s beautiful :-). Sometimes rain has its up sides!
It does indeed! 🙂
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!
What a sweetheart! Glad you sighted her, and I don’t think she minded you! 🙂
🙂 Thank you so much Donna!
She does have that look. I think you should have offered her a warm towel. She is a beauty.
ROFL!!! That’s hilarious Dan. Thanks for the comment and laugh. 🙂
Such a beauty! Thanks, a pleasure reading your posts!

And a beauty this one is! Congrats!
Thank you so much Laura!
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! 🙂
Something fun to try 🙂
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.
