Eastern Bluebird in Early Spring Blooms

I gave myself a little project the last time out. I wanted to capture a bird surrounded by the amazing early spring blooms. My idea was for a bird perched on a branch with flowers all around it. The birds apparently did not get the memo, because they refused to land anywhere near a flowering tree. This bluebird at least had the decency to land on a branch with the flowers well behind it, making for a colorful backdrop. Not what I was hoping for, but those are the breaks of nature photography.
