Portrait of a Blue GrosbeakPortrait of a Blue GrosbeakI spent another evening with this Blue Grosbeak pair as they worked hard catching insects and taking them to their fledglings. This was the very last image I took of the evening. He landed on a bush maybe 12 feet away...the closest he got to me all night. I feel like we established a trust. He knew I would stay behind my camera and tripod and not make any sudden moves while he tended to his nest. I did get more images of both males in better light tonight so I'll share more over time. The other cool thing is when I was walking much further on the trail over 2 pastures away, I ran into another blue grosbeak pair that were working along a fence line by a bean field.
