We were blessed to wake up to temps in the low 60s this morning. It enabled me to get my walk in early without sweating, and I had so much energy left over that I worked in the front flower bed for two hours.
The sky remained overcast all day so I didn't feel the impulse to drive out to Burden Gardens. When I put food out for the Eastern Bluebirds they came in droves, maybe due to natural food sources being more scarce because of the cold. It's cold to me, y'all!
Soon after, it started to mist, but I was undeterred. With joy, I watched and observed, sitting under the eave of the house with the camera balanced on my knee. This looks like a young male due to the white eye-ring, deep blue back feathers, and rust front. He was very suspicious of all the shutter clicks. You can see the concern on his face.
