The female Eastern Bluebird is not as vivid as the male. The rust on the breast is not so deep, and the blue on the back is not so brilliant. I am not saying that is fair, or fitting, or should in any way be related to our own sexual dimorphism…just that seems to work for Bluebirds. This lovey lady bluebird was out gathering meal worms from my feeders as the nor-easter wore down one day last week. If yesterday’s pose was curiosity, this one is maybe expectation? Sony RX10iv at 600mm. Program mode. 1/500th @ f4 @ ISO 200. Processed in Polarr and just a touch of the light tool in Apple Photos.
