Flashback Friday (!)

Hah – that was an idea I dropped pretty quickly! But, as it’s Friday (well, it was when I did this…) and I’m reviving old pics, I guess this sorts under that heading.

I’ve been re-considering Eurasian jays. They used to turn up at late autumn/early winter for a day or two, and I did manage to get some shots in a couple of years ago. But last year they didn’t show – or, at least, I never saw them. I might have been working that day…

They’re shy. Very shy. I remember being lucky in that I was already out taking photos that day. I only had to point the camera as I heard their characteristic cries descending on the place but, even so, I never got a shot off unless I stayed well away. Meaning that the resulting pics really weren’t up to star nature photography standards…

With a little work they do, however, make nice ‘painted’ shots! 🙂



That’s acorns and hazel nuts they’ve got hold of. Considering the new bird feeding post, perhaps the acorns could actually be good for something other than littering the lawn…!

  1. Men ojj sĂ„ vackra dom Ă€r. SĂ„ fint fĂ„ngade, hĂ€rlig upplevelse;) Super hĂ€rliga bakgrunder till och fĂ€rgerna Ă€r gudomliga. Jag har ett par som besöker mig under vinterhalvĂ„ret, hoppas de dyker upp…

    • Åh, vad roligt! Jag skulle ocksĂ„ gĂ€rna se dem hĂ€r oftare – men i Ă€rlighetens namn kan jag nog vara utan deras lĂ€ten i lĂ€ngden… Jag kanske kan fĂ„ njuta av dina pĂ„ bild istĂ€llet? 😉 Tack för dina fina ord! 🙂
