Bathing Bird/Wild Bird

Young blue jay on edge of birdbath

Hmmm. I could tell you about this bird's bath...or simply show you.

 Encounter with a big, BIG frog

A little privacy, please!

Splish-splash I was taking a bath....

I am joining Stewart M's Wild Bird Wednesday HERE

We had the same kind of visitors but I love the frog in your birdbath. Great shots!

Kathy said...

These are such fun photos. Especially the second one!

Jill said...

Now that just made me smile!

Lowell said...

This is too cute! What a funny creature. I don't think it was afraid of the frog, though.

Re your comments: I think the bucket truck people brag about how big their bucket trucks are when they have lunch.

And you are right on about fan(atics) belonging to something bigger than themselves. That's the appeal of many "special" groups.

What a fun encounter of a little bird.

It will refer to its handbook for the identity of this bigger fellow.

Rose said...

It reminds me of Lorelei.

This is a fine series with the little blue jay who looks like he really needed this bath.

George said...

What a great photo sequence. The baby obviously enjoyed his bath.

The frog seems to be a passive observer. Great photos, esp the first one.

Beautiful subject to capture on camera. Love the frog! I can only imagine what it would say if it were alive, "You should see what else goes here:)" Nice shots!

A great way of telling/showing the story of the bird's bathtime.

Michelle said...

Good shots! I enjoy seeing birds taking a "bath"!

Great shots of the bathing beauties with the frog. I have a thing about frogs and have a lot of frog sculptures in my garden but none around the bird baths.

These are great and I adore Blue Jays! In fact my entry is also one for this week. I had to care for a one eyed fledgling Blue Jay 2 years ago, and rally learned to care about them~

Zosia said...

If a bird kisses a frog, does is turn into a prince or into a royal eagle? ;)

Stewart M said...

I hate to tell you, but I think your frog is dead!

Nice pictures of a nice bird - I got raterh excited the first time I saw one!

Love these action shots. Blue Jays are not this far south, so I really enjoyed your photos today.

I have TWO pages of birds...

One, my Sunday Meme Linking post at The Bird D'Pot [birds: some black bellied Whistling Ducks and more]

Two, my personal blog with photos of Brown Pelicans at sea.

Do stop by for a visit if you can find time. I'd love your company.
