Eating Like A Bird

Although my friend’s flowers are no longer in their prime for photographs, her garden is still filled with tons of bird feeders which attracts a lot of, you guessed it, birds. I visited her this Thanksgiving weekend to bring her some pumpkin spice and truffle/pumpkin pies and since it was a warm and sunny afternoon, her garden was busy with little visitors. The 2 main birds, were the chickadee and the nuthatch but by the end of the day, the Blue Jay came out for a bit of dinner action. It was entertaining to watch to say the least. Since they are quite small and fast and I don’t have much experience with photographing moving things (Failed that part of my photography courses 10 years ago), it was rather challenging for me to get a good shot. I first tried with my tripod and remote then gave up and chased the birds on a sports setting instead.
