_MG_2623 Bathing Bluebird

A rare opportunity - caught this bluebird bathing in our 50 degree weather this afternoon. I learned that 1/400 of a second is not fast enough to capture a bathing bird sharply. This was the best of a lot of images.

The bird is standing on the water de-icer.

Very cute capture! I think it is wondering why it didn't go south for the winter. ;-)
