Sunday Blue Birds

By dawnmichelle
Thanks to all the Brave souls that viewed and supported my fun shots... it was kind of you to do so..
Hope you enjoy these blue bird's as they fight over the bird house on the back pourch.. This house they are fighting over is a condo.. it comes with 2 adjoining homes and a large feeder to be sure to be any birds delight. Only thing is these poor little visitors aren't haven't noticed the other home on the end of the feeder... So guess it will fight to the end..or will it?? What you don't see at the moment is there is already someone living in the house and don't want to give it up...

Hope you have a wonderful Sunday..
Please keep each other in your thoughts..

Love V1 in particular, for the sharp capture of the face of the bird in flight. Very clever, plus beautiful.

Interesting story, and V1 is a superb capture.

No 1 gets it about right but you ought to be thinking of a faster shutter speed for 2 and 3. Ideally you need at least one part sharp and clearly defined. May have to wind up the ISO to help with that. Some good imaginative shots Dawn.

V1 is a cracker Dawn.
I think perhaps some cropping to concentrate on the airborne bird would be worth a try.
I have seen out of focus images not as good as this get seventy votes.
Good luck.
