My new job requires a lot of drive-time and I am often on the road throughout the rural mid-Atlantic and Carolinas. One aspect of this travel that is enjoyable is the abundance of Eastern Bluebirds seemingly everywhere I go. These photos were taken in Irvington, Virginia where we were repairing a country home. There were at least 100 Eastern Bluebirds lighting on the fence posts and in the fields. They seemed like flying jewels or ornaments creating a spectacle that brought a huge smile to my face.
