Some times when I am photographing I capture my subjects in funny poses and I think I did exactly that with this female Mountain Bluebird. If I didn’t know what happened in the frames I shot after this one I might wonder what the bluebird is doing. Is she landing? Using the fencepost as a trampoline?
She is just lifting off from the fencepost and in this frame her wings had not opened yet.
I photographed her last week in the Centennial Valley of Montana. Some of the bluebirds there are renesting now because they lost their first broods to a late cold snap & snow.
