Very nice shots! Pretty funny to see the normally prim and proper Blue Jay all mussed up. Very Nice.

This is a perfect series of shots of a bird that I have the hardest time photographing! Bravo

haha lovely photos. I especially love the dipping the head one :-)

Jessica said...

Those are amazing!! I've never seen such up close wonderful bird bathing photos before. I love the second from the bottom where he is all wet. You did good!!

Shellmo said...

j. Karl - Thank you - and I agree - pretty funny how ruffled he is!

Monarch - thank you - I'm always stalking them to get good shots!

Nick - Thank you - I liked it to when I watched him dipping his head into the water too!

Jessica - Thanks! I had to be very quiet as I lifted my kitchen window to point my camera lens out. Usually at the slightest noise - the blue jay is gone.

You are havin' more fun with that birdbath! It makes me want to go out and get one just like it! Your bluejay - just terrific! That last shot was so great!

Shellmo said...

Sandpiper & Birdgirl - I'm ready to put out a dozen more birdbaths to see what else happens!
