Couple of Images from the Backyard

After a couple of days of letting the birds and squirrels use the new bird feeder I set out to photograph them this morning. A bear had knocked over my squirrel feeder so I didn't even bother resetting it back up again. Because of that the birds and squirrels were using the same feeder. There was a fun stand off between the Steller's Jays and a Douglas Tree Squirrel both wanting to use the feeder. The squirrel had posession and wasn't planning on giving up that feeder for anything. That was until it heard the roar of a big truck coming up our driveway. The squirrel, jays and everything else in the area headed for the hills at the sound of the propane truck making its delivery. Afterward the Jays returned first and kept the feeder for some time before the squirrel returned. It gave me plenty of time to get some good jay images. Here are my two favorites from the morning. May you have a blessed weekend, chris Both images were created with a Canon 7D and a Canon 100-400 Is lens. Camera settings were AV mode, ISO 800, F 8.0 at 1/80th of a sec. #TeamCanon, #CanonBringIt
