Beautiful bird. Ask it to fly over here. We really don't have any birds around my home.

I love the way he's "mimicking" the eagle.

Beautiful photo as always. I'm sure you put a lot of work into your photography. It seems you always catch a bird at exactly the right time.

CFrance, it does seem like the Eastern Bluebird's chest is puffed out and he's trying to look tough as he stares in the same direction as the eagle. Even the coppery-brown of his chest mimics the eagle's. alemorkam, you are able to paint with light and have a gift for seeing the beauty in the ordinary. Thanks for sharing.

How would you caption this one, Grace?

A beautiful picture, and so artfully captured. Thanks for sharing. We are surrounded by nature's bounty, if we take the time to look
