Squirrel and a Jay

Yesterday morning I went out into the backyard photoblind to create a few set up images. First thing I noticed was that the feeder was empty. I quickly refilled it with black sunflower seeds and settled into the blind.I didn't have to wait very long before a few chipmunks arrived started chomping away on the seeds. I made a few images but none of them were that promising. Next came the Steller's Jays in force! Sometimes there were five or more of them trying to get to the feeder at the same time. Later on a Western Gray Squirrel arrived and everything cleared out as they can really dominate the feeder.By then the lighting was pretty much gone and i was done for the morning. Great way to start the day. God's precious love to all, chris Camera Equipment Used- Canon 7D, Canon EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6 IS USM at 285 mm, Manfrotto 055XPROB Tripod with a 3055 Ballhead.
