So the action has picked up over the last few days at the bluebird box in my backyard. The eggs hatched about 10 days ago, so mom and dad are both feeding pretty heavily now.
I've setup my trusty bird blind about 10 feet from the box and I sit in there early in the mornings and capture them doing acrobatics while they bring in the food.
Here the male bluebird is returning with a cricket. I swear he looks like a rocket when he returns to the nest. I'm not sure how he even stops in time without crashing!
I made this image with my Sony A77ii and Tamron 150-600mm Lens.
You'll notice the ISO was higher than I normally like here, but I had to bump it up to get a fast enough shutter speed to capture this pose. I did apply a bit of noise reduction in Lightroom.
