Welcome to day 118 of 365 photos…the bluebirds seemed late getting here to nest this year. They had come and checked the nest a couple of times early on and then we didn’t see them. We thought that they decided not to nest here when low and behold, they showed up and started to build a nest in the box. Before we knew it, the nest was built and then five eggs appeared. Did you know that the female lays one blue (or rarely white) egg each morning until three to six eggs are produced. Incubation begins after the last egg is laid. Thirteen to fourteen days later, after incubation, all will hatch within hours of each other. This, from the “NC Bluebird Society.” It is a lot of fun watching and photographing bluebirds. Camera: Nikon D7100 – Lens: Nikon 80-400mm
Focal Length: 400mm – Aperture: f/5.6 – Shutter Speed: 1/1250 second – ISO: 280

Glad that you stopped by my self-project of a photo a day for 365 days. If this is your first time to my site and you wonder what this 365 days of photos is all about, click HERE to read the original post. Settings are added to the photos so that I can remember what I’ve used and can see if any future photos done with other settings turn out better or worse. Remember, this project is all about my learning more about photography.
