Saturday Critters ~ 7 ~

On Monday
 These Blue Jays just did not want to miss the party!!
So, we are late...but here we are.

Picking the perfect peanut...it's an art, you know!










The tray was filled with peanuts, they wiped it out in about 10 minutes.
The Squirrels didn't get any, how sad.

I am super excited to be joining in with Eileen over at
for Saturday Critters.

Stop by and consider joining in, any critter will do!!

Wonderful detail - birds really got lucky when God was handing out colors - I mean, look at all those shades of blue!! Also - super creative on your new bird feeder...I don't think I commented on your DIY post. So creative and thrifty!

Just fantastic pictures of the beautiful bird and the peanut. I can just see the joy in your face while taking these pictures; they are incredible. You need to do a bird photo book for publishing.
Blessings!

clearly I have been making it way too easy on these critters - I put out blocks and seed. Gorgeous colors and great details on these shots.

Love those characters.

Brian King said...

Awesome! I don't know if it's so much about picking the right one as it is trying to pick them ALL! LOL!

Miss Debbie said...

Blue Jays are so pretty. Just wish they weren't such bullies! :-)

I heard something on the skylight yesterday....and it had both me and the cat intrigued.

Turned out, it was a blue jay dropping his peanut over and over again--working it to break it up so he could eat it. It was funny to see it from underneath the little guy.

Muffy's Marks said...

So fun to watch. That's some fancy water dish those birds have.

Nancy said...

They are so pretty and these shots are just great....Love seeing them with the peanut in their mouths...You are such a good "mom" to the birds....
