Cooling down on a hot summers day...............................................................

I say "hot summers day" with a big pinch of salt... but at least the sun has been shining.
The female Blackbird in my garden enjoyed the fresh water in my bird bath to have a good wash.

Nothing to read on this post....  just a bit of  "splish splashing!" to view.





It was fun to watch...
... but I'm not too sure that the spa treatment worked from the look on her face.

Yesterday myself and my partner just stopped what we were doing in the kitchen for 2 minutes to watch a male Blackbird bathe in the bird bath..... brilliant!

Having a bird bath in a garden is very smart to take such great pics!
I'll have to think about that!!
Very lively post!

She obviously enjoyed her bath Andrew!
But are you sure you should have been watching? Going by the look she's giving you in the last image, I don't think she approved!...[;o)

You do need to keep the feathers in tip top condition - even if she does not seem to pleased about it!

Cheers and thanks for linking to WBW - Stewart M

You know what it's like that early morning shower. It just wakes you up even if you don't feel like beginning the day.

Love the expressions on this beauty after the bath~

Brian King said...

All birds look so disgusted by the end of the bath! The robins here love the bird bath out back. Nice shots!

Susan said...
