This was taken at Sippo Lake, in Canton, with a 300mm lens and a Tamron 2x extender. I have been wanting to get a good photo of these birds, but haven’t been successful! I really had to stretch this shot digitally, so somewhat grainy, also added some medium HDR, so not a super photo, but it shows the bird! tc
Not sure if I have photographed one of these birds before. Sippo Lake, Canton, OH; 250 mm, f 14, 1/640th, ISO 3200,
And where’s “Waldo!” My wife an avid walker, is in the photo somewhere! Hint: She is wearing a poncho! 🙂
I woke up 51 years ago, and realized I had heard the bluebirds sing!! I had first met my wife the day before! The following ballad comes close to telling our story, though it was first recorded when we were 4 years old! For complete rendition!
I met a girl out in the hills who gave my lonely heart a thrill
Her beauty seemed just like a breath of spring
And when I looked into her eyes I thought of blue mid summer skies
When I held her hand in mine I heard the bluebirds sing
“I Heard the Bluebirds Sing” is a charming ballad about a happy older couple looking back on their courtship. The song was first recorded on a 78 rpm record in 1952 by Hod Pharis and Little Anne, for the Vancouver-based Aragon Label.
