Cecilia our Bottle Digger - go for it girl. But I do miss your beautiful photos - this is awesome. So sharp and colourful, excellent pose too.
So, when all the land is dug up, and the grass seed is sown, and the roses are blooming, we'll see you again - hopefully.

Your new found hobby sounds fascinating. What an adventure, and in your own back yard!
The plumage colours are lovely. Nice pose, good catchlight in the eye and excellent DoF. TFS

the colour combination of the bird is fantastic. And also your image is really fine.
How long will it take before we can see your actions in Google earth? :-)

Very fine capture of this beautiful Bluebird nicely perched against a very fine background.
Excellent sharp details and lovely colours.
You must have had an exciting time - perhaps there was a Pub in your garden in the old days! :-)
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

It's very good the sharpness and high quality of the picture.
You got a lot of cristal clear details on the bird, and also an excellent pose.
I like very much also the busy but wonderfully blurred background, that thanks to the light creates a great patterns on it.
Congratulations for the picture and for all the discovers made in your property, it sounds very exciting to go in search of it.
My best regards,

Nice to have a garden that has both archeological and ornithological treasures like this male Blue Bird.
Great sharp capture with fine blurred green contrasting BG and set in a pleasing composition.
Nice to see you're back in action and don't do yourself an injury digging for all those old bottles!

Glad to hear that you found treasures in your backyard and can understand why you are digging instead of photographing :)
Glad to see that you have another treasure in your backyard .. the bluebird is such a wonderful treasure. I have a nesting pair as well.
Great shot .. like the pose with the little beetle in the mouth. Good DOF too.

Excellent capture, I like most the color, exposure, and green BG. Great detail, exposure and POV.
Really enjoyed hearing of your find. I can see myself doing exactly the same thing..except that I'd have flood lights, and go at it 24/7 ;}
