Default Bushtits Bathing

Tiny, tiny birds that travel in large groups. They rarely sit still but yesterday they surrounded me by this creek and started bathing! So cute, they are like fuzzy ping pong balls with wings! Females have yellow eyes and males have black eyes.








Drying off

I agree...they are cute. Leaves in the pictures give a scale to the size too. First picture of the two pair looks like they choose to pose for you.

Beautifully done on all. Absolutely love those first two. The water, and the colour tones are just perfect, and really makes them "pop"
