Masked Blue Bird
Photograph - Color Photographs
I captured this brightly colored blue bird, known as the yellow legged honeycreeper, at the Branson, Missouri Butterfly Palace. The Yellow-legged Honeycreeper, also known as the Cyanerpes caeruleus, also commonly known as the Purple honeycreeper, is known in various parts of South America as well as southern Mexico. He was among the hundreds of butterflies. Since he was shy and pretty far away I had to crop the image to get this composition. I was drawn to the lines of the tree and branch as well as the beautiful coloring of the blue bird. I was also pleased with the background pattern. The Butterfly Palace is a fun place to be with a camera.
