Amazing and Hilarious Bluebird Photo

I never did submit a photo for the Dave's Garden 2009 Photo Contest, but I always have to check to see who all won. I should have known that with all the bird enthusiasts with their tenacious bird-watching patience, they would pull some of the best photos. I have to give some major kudos to the second place winner in the Birds! category, David Kinneer, for his picture of a mama bluebird returning to her adolescent chick with a worm. I love this photo because it's a perfect snapshot capturing so much action and emotion and plain hilarity, and it obviously took mad photography skills and lots of patience. I am truly envious of someone being able to capture such a moment.

  1. What a great picture! I wish I could take photos of birds like that... I always get too nervous and miss the shot.

  2. Absolutely fantastic photo! The only good picture with a bird that I have is the last one in my last post. That was a very big bird! I'm sorry I'm late to submit it for a contest.Just kidding. Thank you for showing the David's picture. I will go check other winners.

  3. That is a terrific photo. If I tried to take an action shot like that I would get a big blur. That takes talent and a really good camera.
