For those of you who read my post from yesterday about the frustrations I was having while photographing the Red-naped Sapsucker nesting cavity I want you to know that last evening I was able to get the images I had hoped for of the chick(s) sticking their heads out of the cavity while the adult was feeding them, I even got a few flight shots of the adult coming in. It was not as frustrating because by changing positions and having a lighter background made the exposure not as extreme, it sure was a lot less exasperating for me to change positions a little bit. Yay! But it was late and I didn’t have time to process any of those images.
Today’s post is just a simple bird. A sky blue Mountain Bluebird perched on a rustic pine fence railing taken on a bright beautiful morning in the Centennial Valley of Montana. I loved the blue of the bird against the warm tones of the pine and how the fence maker left some of the bark on the log because I love that texture.
I’m having a great time with birds, creatures and the amazing views found on our public lands. I feel rejuvenated and ready to fight this current administration’s attempt to rob us and future generations of our national treasures.
Life is good.
