04/22/10 - Proud and Busy Parents
As I promised earlier this spring, here are some more bluebird pics from a box near work. The mom is upper left with the dad holding an inch worm? in his mouth. They have this caught in the act look:-) The several day old babies are of course on the right. I count 4. The babies will get much cuter as they get bigger. I love the beak in the lower part of the frame. The faces are all eyes and beaks at first. Don't worry, bluebirds tolerate humans quite well, and the babies were out of the box for less than a minute. Mom was out to begin with and flew back in after.
Thanks so much for your feedback on the wet yellow flower:-) I really like shooting flowers from underneath and getting the blue sky in the shot. That picture was taken at 9AM. A great time to shoot in the spring to catch the wonderful early morning light. Facing West at that time, the sky is often very blue.
Joey and I are off to Take Your child to Work Day. Convenient that he's still tracked out of his year round school (until this coming Monday).
