Mountain Bluebird, Sialia currucoides:
Moraine Valley, Rocky Mountain National Park
As I was setting up my camera to photograph a pair of Pygmy Nuthatches nesting in a pine stump near Moraine Valley campground, this Mountain Bluebird flew to a near by perch. The bird was in perfect light with a flawless background is out-of-focus meadow grasses. The bluebird used the perch numerous times to hawk insects. At one point it flew to my feet and plucked a spider off the ground about half an inch from by boots. Twice, the bluebird alighted a foot away from me, perching on the same rock that I was sitting. It was, least to say, a wonderful experience.
