bluebirds nesting in a log, photographed by Michael L Smith

MICHAEL L. SMITH HAS A PASSION FOR BLUEBIRDS, and he photographs many of them near his Maryland home. During the winter, he often provides hollowed-out logs for the birds to roost and sets up his camera equipment to photograph them without disturbing them. One night in his backyard, he found 13 eastern bluebirds keeping warm. Smith used a Hasselblad 500 EL/M medium format camera, a 250mm lens, tripod and flash.
