A blue bird sits on an old contorted branch at the top of a dying tree and looks out over the edge of the Grand Canyon. How wonderful it must be to be a bird there!
I wish we had such brightly coloured birds in England.

The Grand Canyon most certainly qualifies as depth! When I was there I sat down and took a photo of my feet dangling over the edge… it was certainly terrifying and I got a few strange looks, worth it though 🙂
You’re braver than me! It was scary enough from a few steps back.
What a terrific photo. This bird looks a tad different than the Eastern bluebird that we have in SC, must be a western cousin. I’ve seen a male bluebird twice today. Perhaps the bright sunshine has him thinking about spring.
Thanks – I’ve never seen anything like it at home. And you’re right, the fact that your bluebird is getting out and about surely means that Spring’s not too far away. When I see them chirping excitedly at this time of year, I always think of Chaucer’s ‘Parliament of Fowls’ where the birds meet and make a huge noise in Nature’s bower ‘For this was on St Valentine’s Day / When every fowl cometh there to choose his mate’).
I’m not sure courtship is uppermost in our birds thoughts yet – it’s decidedly wintry.
The Grand Canyon is…well…GRAND!! 🙂
Yes, I was expecting more of a valley!
What a wonderful surprise you had then!!
It’s almost too big to fully imagine even when you’re there looking at it.
Wow. That’s a fantastic shot–and you got a bluebird too–Bonus!
Yes, a bit of luck – I’ve only ever seen that one, that moment, in my life!
Beautiful. The bird and tree give it a wonderful perspective.
Thanks. I wish I’d caught more at the top of the scene but I was so scared the bird would fly away!
Beautiful shot… This has been my favorite depth picture so far today! Well done!
Thank you – I appreciate you stopping by!
Beautiful shot! Love the blue bird.
I love your picture of the long snowy road too!
