    “Is that a windswept feather or are you just happy to see me?”

    The last two “poses” are reminiscent of fashion/glamour photography.

    The second detail of the day are the bright yellow feathers peeking from under the wing.

    I like these photos both as single pictures and also as a series.

    Gorgeous boy!

    Do you ever get the blue grosbeaks in your area? They are stunning!

    CC, no, I don’t! Every so often, we get the Rose-breasted Grosbeaks, and I go crazy taking shots, they are so gorgeous! I’m going to have to find some of the shots from last year and post them.

    He definitely looks like he knows he’s being photographed and is posing.

    I’d swear they do, you just can’t take a bad shot of a Grosbeak.
