Irresistible/ Camera Critters

Blue jays can't resist black oil sunflower seeds

This jay was so focused on the sunflower seeds that he allowed me to get quite close,  though he IS giving me the evil eye.

Great shot. Isn't that the way it is; feed the belly and the defenses drop?

Great closeup of the blue jay- one bird I like to photograph too. We spend a fortune on peanuts in the shell for these guys and they don't hesitate to let you know if there's none out in the yard.

We used to have lots of these around here, at least in the spring and I very seldom even hear one now.

I love Blue Jays, you've captured this one beautifully.

Michael said...

Nice capture. I think he doesn't want to get eaten while he is lunching. So he is keeping a watchful eye out. :)

Blue jays in Tennessee are also very fond of this treat. Great picture.
