From the gruesome to the exquisite...

After posting the death of the poor little vole, I thought I'd better post something a little more upbeat (although, the hawk, I'm sure, was quite in raptures). This beautiful photo of an Eastern Bluebird Larry took this weekend is perfect! The blue is so intense... 


It was quite chilly this weekend, which shows in his puffed-up feathers. I wonder what he was looking at, because his gaze is as intense as his color!

Great capture! I know there are Bluebirds around here (Newport, RI), but so far they've successfully avoided me.

...haha! I hope their luck doesn't hold out too much longer. There's nothing like seeing that flash of blue and orange...
