Purple Martin Blue
An iridescent Purple Martin perched above a nesting gourd in Seabeck, Washington. (Progne subis). I love seeing these birds and usually don't have the reach with my lens for the gourds placed out over water. These particular martins have nesting gourds close to a pier, so it's a treat to watch their aerobatics as they fly in together at regular intervals.
