Photographing my story, one click at a time.

Hot!

It’s been a hot weekend in Indiana. I think today the thermometer said 90, so instead of yard work, I opted to sit on the patio with a cold drink and my camera. I watched the birds perching on branches and fence posts with their beaks open, trying to stay cool. We have three birdbaths in the yard so they spent a good portion of the day visiting them all.

I turned the sprinkler on so it would go over a couple of the birdbaths. This female Bluebird was enjoying the spray.

The male bluebird never did get in, he just let the sprinkler go over him.

This Finch didn’t care that I took her picture over and over. She just wanted a drink.

After all the birds were finished playing in the water, I got a shot of the male and female bluebird scoping out the nesting box.
