Eastern Bluebird in the Midwest
The state bird of Missouri, this eastern bluebird was crossed the state line and was photographed in Kansas. Since two-thirds of a bluebird’s diet is made up of insects and other creepy-crawlies — like beetles, grasshoppers, spiders, and snails — I hope he does his part to keep those critters out of my garden come spring.
Beautiful capture. I really love how the bird looks against that great blue background 😊
I still feel most of my bird shots are too grainy, probably because I have to shoot them from inside on max zoom. But I also think that improving my Photoshop and Lightroom skills will also help me improve the finished product.
