Remember the old Wrigley’s gum commercial – “Double the pleasure, double the fun?” Well, that jingle seems to fit the theme of today’s post, and probably the next several posts as well.
While I am having fun practicing with my new lens, I thought I would choose two of my backyard birds and give them a chance to shine. Since Bluebirds and Blue Jays both made an appearance while I had camera in hand today, they get the honor of going first.
We’ll start with the male Eastern Bluebird, who was pecking the heck out of a mealworm.
Later, he landed on the end of a branch and gave me his best grumpy face before striking a pretty pose.
The Blue Jay was his predictable self. He dropped in, gobbled up some peanuts, and then flew off to enjoy the spoils.
The blues on these fellows are so beautiful. Don’t tell the other backyard birds, but these guys are two of my favorites!
