“The Beauty of Parenting: An Eastern Bluebird with an Earthworm”
This time, I was able to capture an Eastern Bluebird in my yard, carrying an earthworm for its nestlings.
Spring is a time of new beginnings, and I was lucky enough to observe this Eastern Bluebird as it brought food to its young.
To capture this photo, I used my Canon EOS 7D Mark II camera and a Canon EF 500 mm f/4L IS USM lens. My setup was designed to make it easy to photograph the Eastern Bluebirds in my yard, and the results speak for themselves. The photo was taken on May 1, 2020, in Arkansas and has the following settings: Aperture: f6.3, Shutter Speed: 1/320 sec, ISO: 1250, Exposure Bias: +1/3 EV, Exposure Mode: Aperture Priority, and Focal Length: 500 mm.
In conclusion, this photo is a testament to the beauty of parenting and the important role that parents play in the lives of their young. Whether it’s bringing food to the nest or providing other forms of support, parents play a critical role in the survival and success of their offspring. I hope this photo inspires others to appreciate the natural world and the beauty and majesty of its inhabitants.
