Photographer Karen K has captured such a sweet look in this Eastern bluebird. That said, perhaps that sweet look is more about lunch. These small thrushes can often be found perching with a view of open fields and meadows, looking for insects and other things to eat. Amazingly, they can sight their tiny prey from 60 feet or more. But regardless, whether hunting or musing, it's a wonderful shot. Would you like to see your nature photo featured as the TreeHugger photo of the day?
