On Wednesday it was a rainy day and we didn’t do anything outside. I had the tripod set up by the back door and the feeders had just been filled the night before. Even though we have birds all year round at this time of the year it seems more of them are returning to our area for the winter months. You could hear the bluejay squawking its loud call, so I knew it would be in and around the feeders for awhile.
It wasn’t long before the shutter button started clicking.
I got that quizzical look that said … are you watching me? aren’t I gorgeous?
I think I deleted more photos than kept as he moved so quick a lot of the photos were blurry or of only part of him. It was then I decided to video his antics at the peanut feeder.

He was always looking around to see that no other bluejays were approaching his peanuts.
Such a handsome lens friend for a damp and dreary day.
The rain clouds have moved out today and the sun is breaking through. We’ve been out to the library and did a few errands on the way home. There really isn’t much left to do in the gardens but relax and enjoy the birds.
