Fantastic shot of this beautiful guy! I always
smile when I see a flash of blue when I'm driving
along a country road and they fly from post to
post, as if trying to keep up with you! Now he
has a frame as beautiful and Blue as he is!
Congratulations, James!

We are envious! We didn't see even one bluebird this winter. Probably due to having very cold weather and frosts, which delayed the arrival of berries on the mistletoe.
This is such an excellent capture. Congratulations on your AC.

I hope so too, James; I've learned a few camera tricks since last time when I needed about 5 hands to manipulate everything.

Nice shot, James! I saw Mr. Bluebird carrying nesting material into the bird house outside my window yesterday.

About gardner48197

12/2014: Greetings from Michigan, where we get quite a wide variety of weather changes throughout the four seasons! Originally I found this site, for the weather, and the photos kept drawing my interest! Decided to get my first digital camera in 2010, and have since upgraded to a Nikon P530. Truly an amazing, eye-opening hobby! This is a great community, so many excellent photographers and friends, so little time! I do read and appreciate every comment and email that I receive! I would like to thank everyone who contributes, for all of the great inspiration and feedback! Sometime down the road I would still like to get a DSLR camera, but for now I just I hope to send a small view of life from the Great Lakes State. Home of the University of Michigan Wolverines! Go Blue! -James
