I’ve Got The Blues (Birds That Is…)

My last post featured the red, orange, and yellow birds I photographed this past November at Lake Greenwood, South Carolina.  Just as fun and challenging were the resident birds of blue.

The smallest of the three were the Eastern Bluebirds.  Always cute and adorable.

Then there were the Blue Jays.  They were quite busy darting from tree to tree, looking for and collecting berries.

And finally, the biggest of all the blues was a daily visitor, a Great Blue Heron.

I can’t help but enjoy those blues!

I hope everyone had a beautiful celebration of the Holiday season.  Best wishes for a Happy New Year, and Happy Shooting everyone!

  1. I can’t help but marvel at your shooting skills! Especially delightful given the blues in this post! (My favorite color.)
    Wishing you the very best shooting for the coming year!

  2. Love your blue birds Donna especially the Blue Jay and the Bluebird! Have a wonderful New Year and may you recover quickly from your injury so you can get back out there to enjoy your wonderful journey again!

  3. Beautiful photos, as always! Great capture of the bluejay and heron in flight. My goal for 2017 is to capture a large bird – heron, egret, osprey, or eagle, in flight in a sharp enough picture that all the feathers are clear and crisp. So far it hasn’t happened – or else I’m just getting more critical of my work. 🙂
