It seems that I am having a hard time getting to regular posting on the blog.
I know I could be giving all kinds of so called reasons,but they would sound more like excuses,so I won't go there.I guess,in part my life has become busier,and that is not a bad thing.
Today I pulled up a few pictures of recent bird shots.
Looking at the leaves on this Silver Maple,it shows that the fall colours are just beginning.
Somehow,this Robin looked a little lost,like he/she should have headed south already.
The Blue Jays and I have what might be called a working relationship.
I give them peanuts and they have to 'work' for me by posing for pictures.
I don't think they see it quite the same way,but whatever the case,it works in my favour.
I put the peanuts at such a place as is convenient for me to get pictures.
I really like how the background turned out in this shot.
Of course,other birds come in at close range,to get a drink of water and maybe a sunflower seed.
Here the Red-breasted Nuthatch is on one side of the birdbath and the Black-capped Chickadee on the other.
The Black-capped Chickadees are always ready to pose for a picture,providing the photographer can be quick enough.It doesn't matter how many pictures I have of them,I keep on taking more.These are my very favourite birds.
This Blue Jay seems to be in a contemplative mood,but more than likely he is deciding which peanut to grab next.I like the fine details visible in the feathers.
Thought for today:
