Everybody Loves A Bluebird

Why is it that everybody loves a bluebird?
Maybe it’s because their sheer beauty takes our breath away.  Or perhaps it is because their bright colors seem to lift our spirits.  I know whenever I see one I can’t help but smile.

I photographed this male at sunrise this morning when he arrived for his breakfast.  The female below was at sunset the day before.  I’m not sure which is lovelier.
