Eastern Bluebird, New Jersey wildlife photography.
This female Bluebird did not tolerate close photos, but luckily I paused upon approach to grab what I call “safety shots”. In the world of birdwatchers, we become familiar with the terms “flushing” and “flush range”. It infers a wildlife species’ or individual’s quantifiable tolerance for close human approach.
My “safety shot” shown here has both an uncluttered foreground and background while possessing a viable illumination. Hence, a keeper for me.
