Splish Splash I was Taking a Bath

This female House Finch (Carpodacus mexicanus) was taking a bath in the bird bath last weekend. It was quite an event to watch. She'd flop around in the water for a little while, fly off and then come back and do it all over again. She looked like she was having a fun time doing it. These photos were taken with Donna's Rebel T2i and my EF 400 lens. Exposure for both photos was 1/500th at f/5.6 and ISO 200. Camera was mounted on my Induro CT314 Tripod.


  1. You're right, she does look like she's having a good time! Lovely background in these, and I love the sense of action/movement.

  2. This is fantastic! I want a bird bath too!!

  3. Love these photos. I think it is so cool to watch them take a "bath." LOL
