p.1 #1 · Easterns on the back deck.


This is the second year my parents had bluebirds nesting in a birdhouse on their deck. This year I decided to try some set up shots instead of just getting photos of them on the birdhouse or deck rail, so I clamped a stick to the deck to serve as a perch before they went into the box. Then later I gaffer taped put some blossoming tree branches around the perch to give it some more visual interest. It has been trial and error arranging everything correctly and giving the birds time to get use to the different surroundings and getting them to want to land on the perch, but it has been rewarding. Hopefully there will be more to come over next few weeks.

Good looking birds Mark! The splashes of pink sure work well with the blue.

Nice images. Good improvisation on setting up those perches this season. However for me the thick perch really doesn't go that well those delicate flowers. Try to use a slender perch with those flowers.
The shots however are great especially #1 and 3 for me.
