Weekly Photo Challenge–Up

I looked up into our old oak tree, and spied a Blue Jay looking back at me.

Rarely are two Blue Jays seen this close together.

Bird of a Different Feather

Scouting the Great Backyard with camera in hand, I was surprised by a visitor–one with unusual plumage. 

I couldn’t help but notice the number of acorns falling from our old oak. Those ornery squirrels and blue jays will have something to keep them busy: the reforestation of the backyard. And next year, I’ll be pulling the fruit of their labors out of the flower beds and planting containers!

Thanks for looking!
