Captured 4/24 about 5 feet from landing perch 1/1000 f/4 with Canon 600 f/4 + 1.4X TC from 80 feet away. He was snatching caddis flies and stoneflies from spring water. This was a long and difficult shot on a rainy day. Used a Canon 1DS full frame and cropped the bluebird out. I am very lucky to have a BLUEBIRD trail on my Arkansas home"s property; 12 houses; 9 occupied by bluebirds and 2 by Tree Swallows; one by a blacksnake ! In addition the property is located in the mountains in bear country and has a large diversity of song birds; as I am located on the Little Buffalo River. This is 1 in a series of 220 of this pair I captured.
