Best 5 Photos of our Spring Collection

In this blog post, I will present the five best images from my spring collection and the stories behind them. 

Mountain Bluebird 

I waited a long time for something to show up. I took a break from waiting while setting up the camera for these pictures. Then, to my surprise, I found another couple of Mountain Bluebirds. You can spot the male with his bright colors. 

I changed my lens as fast as I could and had a lovely time with my friends. We studied each other. They are reticent. He posed for me while he observed me from every angle. They symbolize love and joy. The powder-blue male Mountain Bluebird is among the most beautiful birds in the West.

Tree Swallow Coming out of Nest

We were excited when we discovered our neighbor’s tree swallows in our birdhouse last spring.

On a chilly Saturday morning, I went out before sunrise, set up my tripod and camera, and waited for the sun to come up so I could see the tree swallows. It didn’t take long after I started watching Tree Swallow action. They are so entertaining! The little guys were coming and going out of their new place. They were speedy, and they didn't sit still for long. It was complicated to take a photo of them. I am very patient, and I got a couple of incredible images that day. This photo is my favorite one.

Mourning Doves 

These mourning doves in Daniel, Wyoming, are hard to spot when they are on the ground. I knew they were out there, but I couldn’t find them. 

Suddenly, a rumble of thunder shook the ground and spooked them. There were 100 mourning doves in the air. To be honest with you, the thunder scared me too. I felt it. The majority of them left the place. Some came back, but they were anxious to be on the ground. They were hanging on the fence for about 15 minutes. 

I couldn't resist taking a photo of them chilling on the fence.

Seeing them and living that experience with my little friends was beautiful.

Female Mountain Bluebird 

When I finally found my spot, I got my Sony A7III with the 200 - 600 mm and the extender. To my delight, my first subjects showed up right after I was ready. A couple of mountain bluebirds were checking me out. They have excellent eyesight. They can spot insects in tall grass at a remarkable distance of 50 yards. 

The females are in charge of building the nests, while the males guard the territory and the females. They can raise two or sometimes three broods per season. It was beautiful to see this female with construction material on her little bill.

Great Blue Heron

I went to Brenda’s yard and met a blue heron who likes to hang out in her yard.

It was a great cold and windy experience. I saw it in the distance and prayed it would land where I aimed. It circled the pond and pied massively before landing. Hahaha!

A Canada Goose was in the yard, and we knew each other’s presence. I was shooting the Canada Goose before the Blue Heron arrived. When it came, I turned the camera at the Blue Heron. I swear the Canda Goose got jealous and gabbled its way at where I was aiming. The Canada Goose offended the Blue Heron, and it flew away.
