A mountain bluebird takes flight from its perch in a golden quaking aspen tree.

I enjoyed a wonderful half hour photographing a group of about 20 mountain bluebirds, including many flying shots like this painting, as they took advantage of a birdbath in central New Mexico late one winter.

Male mountain bluebirds are a beautiful sky-blue, darker on the wings and tail and lighter below. They lack the rusty-orange breast of the Eastern Bluebird and Western Bluebird. They are common in the West's wide-open spaces, particularly at middle and higher elevations.

Quaking aspen are affectionately known as "quakies", due to the way that even a small breeze causes their leaves to dance.
