Photo Description
Imagine a glass prism that breaks up light into all colors of the spectrum. Now imagine a glass prism that reflects light in only shades of blue.

Bluebirds feathers are practically colorless, like glass. They act as a prism, but returning only colors of a blue wavelength. When you see a bluebird, you do see blue, but it's not the feathers that are blue, just the refracted and reflected light bounced off the feathers.

Why would the bluebird evolve to have colorless feathers that reflect only beautiful shades of blue. We know so little.

Like my picture? I asked this little turdus if his breast was really red. He said, 'Look, I'm not going to undress just to satisfy your curiosity. You'll have to take my word for it, Bubba'.

I went to the park in the early morning for a much needed walk. All of a sudden this big beautiful bird appeared and landed in front of me. It was awesome; it was so close. I stood there smiling and just admiring it. It looked right at me and didn't even get bothered at all by having its picture taken. Good morning to you too lovely birdie. ;)

Late afternoon, and our feathered friends know it is feeding time. Such beautiful creatures, each one, even the common or greys. And how interesting to note which varieties appear with variations in food - bread, seed, and various fruit types.

Cardinal and Woodpecker

I was already taking pictures of this lovely female cardinal when the downy woodpecker came in. He nipped her tail a little, hence the indignant attitude!

It was an icy January morning in 2011, and I was snapping photos of the birds in our back yard here in north central Louisiana. I do this often from our back deck, it is like therapy for me! I was so happy to capture this fella's pose that day.

Red Cardinals in the Snow

CommentPin It!Like this photo?Like? Yes

Red cardinals are so pretty to look at in the snow in the winter. They decorate many calendars and Christmas cards, which is understandable. I hang my feeder close to the kitchen window, which gives me a meal time view of them.

I managed to catch these two turtle doves in a tree in our backyard. They were enjoying the sun and didn't even notice me. They looked so peaceful and calm, as if nothing could ever disturb them.

I found him injured in my balcony and nursed him. Now he stays with us on most days. He flies out at times but generally returns to us.

This cardinal sits in the forsythia bush every day as though he's posing for me. Sometimes he brings the Mrs., but she is very shy and stays in the background.

egrets and geese meet

CommentPin It!Like this photo?Like? Yes

These snowy egrets and Canadian geese seemed to be having a conference, as they were in the same place an hour later when I drove back by. The geese were letting themselves be heard while swimming back and forth in front of the Egrets.

bird nesting on light about hospital entrance

CommentPin It!Like this photo?Like? Yes

This little darling sits atop what appears to be a light and greets each person who walks through the doors of the emergency room. All the nurses loved it! I hope they let this little one stay here, since she has been here the whole time I have been staying here in the hospital with my mom.
