No Butts About It

Perhaps  a better title would be “All Butts About It” since most of my birds seemed intent on showing me their backsides yesterday!

But hey, when you’re out taking pictures of birds, you can’t exactly position them just like you want them to pose.  Like the old saying goes, “You get what you get and you don’t pitch a fit!”  Besides, their back feathers really are beautiful!

So, for your viewing pleasure, may I present a gallery of bird behinds. If you click on any of the photos, you can scroll through and see them enlarged.

I’m hoping Laura from Create Art Everyday will try her hand at the Blue Jay!

Bottoms up!  And hope you have a lovely weekend.

  1. Cute butts :-D! The wren is my favorite.

  2. Love, Kathy! hehe! You weren’t kidding about that blue jay photo. It’s perfect, because the head is so prominent! Really love the bluebird too. And that little wren! Don’t you love the lines on him/her? Wow! These are all great! Thank you 😀 ((((((Kathy))))))

      You don’t really have to sketch him, but I did think of you when I first saw his pose. 🙂

      • He’s perfect! I did one of your other blue jay photos last night and really loved it! Dying to try this one. They really are beautiful. Ours are pigs and eat us out of house and home. Hub built a feeder to try and keep them out while letting the little birds in. So we don’t really like them. But they sure are gorgeous.

    Wonderful photos Kathy! Thanks for sharing with us 🙂

  4. Love the butts! Great series, it’s nice to see all the lines and colors of their backsides.

  5. Made me smile! 🙂 Lots of cute little bird-butts! LOL Hope you are having a wonderful New Year, Kathy.

    LOL. My husband takes bird photos and they often look the other way (when they aren’t hiding behind tree limbs).

    Also: it’s good to see birds from behind because they rarely show this view in the guide books. It helps to learn what a bird really looks like and to make them easier to ID.

  8. Gotta give the bluebird credit for showing more blue from the back than from the front though. 😉
