I love the light across the shoulder and face, Jenny. Great exposure!

Perfect timing on this super and beautiful action shot Jenny! I have the same problem with the blue jays and red squirrels at my feeders too. It's quite a letdown for the other birds who count on having a feeder to come to.

Jenny Stevens

Yes, it is driving me crazy !!! I keep filling the feeder though... so they win !!

I love the lighting on the shoulder and face, Jenny. Along with the dark background it makes that blue on the Jay so beautiful. The seed keeps the eye from being lost at the bottom. Another great one!

Jenny Stevens

Thank you so very much Harold.

Yves Langlois

Beautyful colours and action on this one Jenny.

Jenny Stevens

Thank you Yves. Appreciated.

Wayne Duke

Great shot, love the fact that you have captured the moment when it throws the seed out. That's the story.

Jenny Stevens

Hi Wayne. Good to see you. Thank you so much. Yes, it is frustrating. They are no fools though !!! They win...

Both the Grackles and the Blue Jays do this: Scoop piles of bird seed out on to the ground for easier feeding. They can empty the feeder in three hours.
