This female Eastern bluebird stopped late in the afternoon for a much needed break from hunting and feeding babies to take a dip in the birdbath. She splashed happily after lingering for a while on the edge of the birdbath. She was facing the west as light filtered through the trees and rested on her lovely little form. I intensified the effect with light filters from PhotoShop.

    So lovely, Bonnie. Such a serene composition (before the frenzied splashing, no doubt!) :o) She’s so pretty and the background and lighting here is really rather magical!
