I have some new photos of the blues below. This is the Mr. and the reason his wing is blurry is because that's how they communicate with one another. They do communicate audibly but they also do these wing waves to each other. I was encroaching on their territory while taking this picture and they were sending warnings. Rest assured, that I was standing outside the garden and using the gate as a stabilizer for my camera. This couple is really very camera shy.
This time he's watching me over his right wing. He's just fed the babes.
See that blue blurr? That's the Mr. scooting off the fence just as I snapped the picture. I know it's not a great pic, but I thought it was pretty cool.
Anyone want dinner? Here he is atop a rusty fence post, checking me out and waiting until it's safe to get to the box. It just marvels me as to how they can alight on the smallest of perches.
These are the babes asleep. We figure they were just about a week old in this picture. I don't know if we'll get any more pics of them before they fledge. I always worry about opening the box a this point and having them jump out before they're ready.
