It’s been dreary and overcast for many days in a row. But, yesterday the sun came out. I took the opportunity to capture a few good photos of the wild birds that visit my yard.
The Eastern Bluebird couple that has been making a home in the white birch nest box on the south fence decided to check out the closest box to my office patio where I set up my camera. It allowed me to get some good shots of them both. I love when I can capture a glint in their eyes, and when it’s possible to see the details in their lovely feathers. The couple sat on the fence just near the “pond nest box” as I refer to it because it is nearby our koi pond. The male flitted down to the box, peered inside, then took a position next to his mate. She flew down to look inside, as well. That position puts the birds just about twenty feet from where I sat waiting to click the shutter.
