Squirrel and Jay
Where has the summer been going so fast? Exactly where I'm not really clear. It just seems that I can't get out and do all that I want to do. I have so many ideas and projects and not enough space to fit them all in! This morning I was bound and determined to get back out to the photoblind as I haven't spent much time in the blind lately. I awoke bright and early and was out in the blind well before seven. The valley below was filled with fog but there wasn't a cloud in the sky which means that the good lighting wasn't going to last very long. There weren't too many birds except for the Steller's Jays which came to the feeders in abundance. Between the jays and the squirrels I had plenty of things to photograph and keep me entertained. What a delightful way to start the day.
