The Bluebirds were starting to hang around the back yard nest box shopping in warm weather recently. This gentleman posed nicely for me one evening.

Is this a composite: No
Sony A7Riv, FE200-600 + 1.4 TC @ 840 mm, hand held, f/9, 1/1000, iso 1000, manual exposure. Processed in LR & PS CC. Cropped to 3600x4596 from a horizontal original. Taken March 3rd at 5:02 PM.
What a beauty! What, you couldn’t get him to go a tiny bit higher on that branch so his tail wasn’t cut off? Silly bird. Still, the light is to die for.
Can’t go wrong with Bluebirds, Dennis. Nice perch and a good BG. Well done.
The results from the new camera are turning out first class. Really a nice pose and lovely bg. Nice and sharp and excellent colors. A pretty bird.
Superb color and detail. Might even work as horizontal crop.
Hi @David_Schoen I do have a few frames where he has more of a head turn to our right which would work very well for that crop, but I chose to process this one because it was just marginally the sharpest.
Nice bird, and it stands out great against the background. Indeed, a slight bummer that the tail tip seems to be missing, but what can you do? All in all a very pleasant image. Best, Hans
The Bluebird do have a tuff union. Very pretty photograph.
