1. Bluebird at its morning ablutions (playful pp).

2. Mom osprey house cleaning. Two babies in nest + unknown photo bomber behind. Note angle of the decorations. Windy!

3. One of the bald eagle twins testing its wings this morning. Fifth summer I've been enjoying this nest; it never gets old! (from jpg at 2x digital zoom + more cropping. It's a long distance!)

These are great Linda, birds at work being birds - bath time, tidying the house, tending the kids. I love the concept and the images, which are detailed, well composed and exposed, such a pleasure to see. You have taken us into their world, a wonderful experience.

Mike, so glad you enjoyed; thanks!

Minnie, you know I never thought about the theme that connects these?! I'm very grateful for your lovely comments; thanks so much.

The first is a pose I've never seen before and I love it all the more for it. What a wonderful shot! Such a beautiful shot! S-

Thanks very much, Steve. Two (one a juvie, I think) kept me entertained for awhile, but they were at a distance, it was a bit dark, so the image quality suffered...and I turned to the playful pp solution :)

It's amazing when you take the time to be one with nature! S-
