What a beautiful little bird, lovely capture. I love the way the colour on his breast matches the colour of the rust on the fence

Wow - love the velvet-like textures and vivid colours of the bluebird. Fascinating how the colours of its chest match the rusty markings on the fence. Super dramatic effect as well, Jason, with your shallow depth of field.

So strong is the chain link, so sweet, silky and precious the little bird. And the orange and blue opposites are captured too. You nailed "relationship."

So well spotted, with this little cutie having the chest color to match corrosion on the fence, and of course that popping blue! Sweet.

That's funny because the only blue bird pictures i have were taken exactly on a fence like this one... It's almost the same picture... which is very god by the way !

gorgeous shot and gorgeous bird! I also love how the rust on the fence mirrors the rust-color on the bluebird's breast - wonderful!

Magnificent photo, something I seem to never see. Remember seeing a blue jay once, but
not more than twice. Beautiful.

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

What a beautiful blue captured in this bluebird! And how ironic that the rust on the fence realy brings out the bluebird's chest color. Or did the rust come off on its chest? ;-)

What a lovely portrait. The colors are gorgeous. I have never seen a blue bird. The colors are so intense!

The little bird tried to blend in.... This is a wonderful image. I have not seen bluebirds in real life. Did not realize that blue glows so. Gorgeous!
