When I’m in Yellowstone in May I usually see a few mountain bluebirds and I usually try to get a decent photo of one. I haven’t had much success until this year. I’ve had some incredible opportunities this time. I don’t know why this year has been different, but the number of bluebirds I’ve seen this year is much, much higher than I’ve seen before.
I photographed this male while waiting for the mother pronghorn just inside the north entrance (Roosevelt Arch) to come back to her young and feed and move them.
I photographed this female at the same time.
Mom finally showed up and fed and moved her babies. She hid them far from each other. I think that is to increase the odds of fawn survival. When she finished feeding and hiding them I went back to the bluebirds.
