M. I. A....

Sorry everyone, that I haven't posted for awhile,  A friend opened a shop in the Mall, and asked me to join the team, part time, well with the setting up and opening and Christmas, part time has turned into full time,  but I am enjoying it and will likely be busy until the holidays are over, ( I haven't even started my shopping or baking yet) am missing my photography, but bear with me,  I will be back, just wanted to let my faithful followers know, I am alive and well, just busy !! Will try and pop in once in awhile and see your pics, miss everyone.... :)

Gray Jay close ups...

Went over to Hersey Lake, yesterday, and got a few of this Gray Jay, sometimes called a Whiskey Jack,
when he stopped to pick up the seeds, he lingered longer, (with the peanuts, he grabs one and is gone)
These were taken with my canon 70-200mm lens and I was probably 3-4' away from him. It was a dull day, but I liked these anyway.
