Blue Jay!

We finally have a few Blue Jays at our feeders, but they are very hard to get pictures of. Every time I would get the camera to take a picture, it would put its butt in the air...

...or put its head down.

Finally, I got one.
I sat on the deck as still as I could and finally got this one!

I didn't realize how many different blues they had in their wings.

Very nicely done. That last photograph is a beautiful picture of a bluejay. We've had bluejays at our birdfeeders right along. The bluejay appears to be camera shy :-) I have yet to capture a photograph of a bluejay.

By the way I was doing likewise today, sitting on our porch trying to capture photographs of birds and our "pet" chipmunk. I hadn't seen the chipmunk in a while, but he resurfaced today. I'll post my pictures later today.
