  1. Congratulations! What a beauty. He’s looking right at you, too! That first photo is greeting-card worthy. You could print up a handful, and have birthday cards ready to go for the year. Well done!

    I too spend plenty of time either standing frozen near the feeders or fences, or running to get my camera, only to return to…nothing.

    • Thanks! Yes, it’s frustrating when I miss a shot like that. Just this week, I missed a gorgeous coyote running by on the hill behind our house, and the next day, I missed a deer eating acorns out of an oak tree.

      • Wow! You see some amazing creatures from your home. I’m quite envious. I watched a squirrel this morning push his head in and out of the slats in the fence. It was so cute. Once I grabbed my camera, poof!

    • Really, I’ve been trying to catch a photo of this one for months. So skittish! I finally got some shots by leaving the back door open and took photos from inside the house. :)

    I found this Photo of a very beautiful black and blue Bird on Nature Mom´s Blog. It´s a Steller’s Jay. The Bird is very beautiful and I do like the colors of the Feathers. She found the Bird in her Backyard and she tried to take a Photo for months. She finally had success. :) Please visit her Blog if you are Nature interested.
