    record shot of two of the Jays together ....

    Magpie

    not the best shot but I loved the way this cheeky Jay tilted it's head staring down at me     lol

  • In reply to HAZY:

    Those Jays are so smart Hazy, had to laugh as I waited for the pics to open and slowly what looked like the top of your bedpost appeared in the Magpie photo, I thought ......  heavens, she is taking it a bit too far now sleeping outside to get good pics:-)

  • Jays are always great photo subjects but "Wheeee…" is great too. I always assumed birds would take off with their wings open but I have enough photos of my own to know they never do from height - they just jump and hope to get flight speed before hitting the ground! I suppose it saves energy and so makes sense … it just doesn't look right somehow!!!

    Yes it's amazing how they launch themselves with closed wings from height;    I had a photo of the Jay which I was going to put on bad pics as he was almost going out of frame by the time I pressed the shutter button !     but seeing as we are talking about leaps of faith and no wings   !! ...........................  at least its still in focus    lol
