A Pleasant Reunion
After much too long apart, this morning I was involved in a reunion of sorts. According to my database, it has been many years (possibly decades) since I concentrated on eastern bluebird photography. Having been told of an active nest box late last week, I decided to check it out this morning. What a productive and easy wildlife photography session! It couldn’t have been much simpler and a great way to begin the day.
When my photography interests were beginning to get serious many decades ago, much of my efforts were focused on producing pleasing eastern bluebird images. Those were the days of film and only the basics of equipment. My photography has seen some changes since then, but the process of bluebird photography remains virtually the same. I had forgotten how easy it is to sit in a lawn chair near an active nest box and shoot pictures. Well, there might be a bit more to it than that, but not much. I came home with many images…following are some of them. (I am so thankful for the reunion! Thanks Kris!)
While shooting the eastern bluebird photos, I had other species sit still long enough for pictures to be made.
