Mountain Bluebird Male Feeding

Mount Evans Wilderness Area, Colorado

While exploring the Mount Goliath Area of Mount Evans Wilderness, I observed mountain bluebirds dropping from a nest site to catch insects. They would pause on a bristlecone pine snag before returning to the nest. This male was a particularly prolific hunter, catching a bug every few minutes. Mountain bluebirds migrate through the Colorado shortgrass prairie in early spring, then spend time in sagebrush, where some build nests in cottonwood cavities. Others, like this male and his mate, travel as high as timberline for breeding season.

My archival prints are printed on professional paper that holds color and detail and looks great mounted.  All prints are signed.

DuraPlaq Mounted

The Duraplaq Standard substrate is a 3/8" HDF board that is 100% recycled, environmentally friendly and is pre-laminated on both sides and finished with a "box" frame. The finished picture has a clean look and the matte laminate greatly reduces glare, allowing you to see the image. Duraplaq mounted prints can be cleaned with your normal glass cleaning products and are extremely durable.
